Dear parish family and friends of St. Julia,
Lord Jesus, send us your healing touch.
“In the morning, while it was still very dark, he (Jesus) got up and went out
to a deserted place, and there he prayed” (Mark 1:35).
In this Sunday’s Gospel, we once again see the importance of daily prayer in Jesus’ life. Just like Simon’s mother-in-law, we too cry out, Lord Jesus, send us your healing touch.
As a Church, as a family here at St. Julia, we pray for all those suffering. Not just those that are sick, but everyone. We are all suffering. We pray for spiritual and physical healing, for comfort for all those isolated in their homes, hospitals, and long-term care facilities. For those mourning the loss of a loved one. For all those separated from their families. For those facing job loss, financial difficulties. For parents and single parents trying to juggle work and family lives. The list goes on, and it is different for each one of us
And so, we too, need to find the strength to pray, mirroring Jesus, in that quiet place. The prayer can be this simple…
Lord Jesus, send us your healing touch
Please know of my continued prayers for all of your needs and intentions, both personally, and during the greatest prayer that we offer, the celebration of the Mass.
May God continue to bless each of you and those that you love.
From Our Pastor
