The Virtue of Tolerance07-23-2017Fr. Scott Holmer
I cannot thank you enough for your warm welcome here at St. Edwards. It was a great joy to be able to celebrate my first Mass with you all last weekend. I very much look forward to getting to know each and every one of you. Please do not hesitate to introduce yourself to me after Mass and remind me of your name frequently. I have a tough time remembering names but I will try my very best.READ MORE

God of our ancestors, long ago you sent Abraham on a journey of faith to a land promised to him and his descendants. You led the people of Israel to a desert to a land flowing with milk and honey where they might live according to your covenant. You continued to protect and guide your people, sending Raphael to watch over Tobiah on his way as he journeyed to fulfill his father’s command. Watch over us as we travel and keep us secure. May Your angels protect us on our journey and lead us safely home at the end of our trip. Let Your provident hand guide us while we are gone and upon our return may we offer you thanks for your protection and watchfulness over our days, Amen.
