James 5:16, 19-20
Declare your sins to one another, and pray for one another, that you may find healing. The fervent petition of a holy man is powerful indeed. My brothers, the case may arise among you of someone straying from the truth, and of another bringing him back. Remember this: the person who brings a sinner back from his way will save his soul from death and cancel a multitude of sins.
Sometimes I stumble across a passage of scripture that truly resonates with our apostolate. Just last week our group promised to pray for each other’s children who bear the burden of Same Sex Attraction. Then today after praying for that person, I found in the Brievary this reading embedded in the Evening Prayer.
God smiles upon those who accept their cross yet find it within their own heart to reach out to others that are hurting. During this Lenten season, let us extend our prayers to others who can really use them.
