House of Prayer August 2015

HOP August in English











Call 3 “ Go where the need is the greatest” Aughop2

We had

No bombs, No homeless

No junk food. No stress

No sickness, No poverty

No crime rate, No pollution

And they called us Primitive & Savage





For the darkness of waiting of not knowing what is to come

of staying ready and quiet and attentive,

we praise you, O God:

For the darkness and the lightare both alike to you.

For the darkness of staying silent for the terror of having nothing to say

and for the greater terror of needing to say nothing,

we praise you, O God:

For the darkness and the light are both alike to you.

For the darkness of hoping in a world which longs for you,

for the wrestling and labouring of all creation

for wholeness and justice and freedom,

we praise you, O God.

For the darkness and the light are both alike to you.

From Bread of Tomorrow: Prayers for the Church Year, Janet Morley, ed.

We pray with the Church and the World

Universal: VOLUNTEERS -That volunteers may give themselves generously to the service of the needy.

Evangelization: OUTREACH TO THE MARGINALIZED- That setting aside our very selves we may learn to be neighbours to those who find themselves on the margins of human life and society.

9th August: International Day of world’s Indigenous Peoples – “The disappearance of a culture can be just as serious, or even more serious, than the disappearance of a species of plant or animal. The imposition of a dominant lifestyle linked to a single form of production can be just as harmful as the altering of ecosystems.”

12th August: International Youth day: “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God” (Mt 5:8). Dear young men and women, as you see, this beatitude speaks directly to your lives and is a guarantee of your happiness. So once more I urge you: Have the courage to be happy!

We pray with the Institute

We rejoice and pray with our A. A rockia Powlin who will make her Perpetual Profession on 16th August “that she will give Him all she has and all she needs she will find in Him.” Mary Ward

For all the Indigenous people we serve and work along side in our ministries, that we may be open to learning from them.

For all Volunteers working among us, that it may be a mutual gain for those serving and served.

For youth everywhere specially the ones in our care, that they may grow into fullness each day.


Just SoulIt is when I am in the midst of people experiencing

trouble and hardships and I am

feeling vulnerable and powerless myself,

that God takes me by surprise and I

become ‘bowled over’ by the power of God’s love.
