This June, as last year, we will be joining our Roman sisters and brothers in daily praying the Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

In our devotions we will pray especially that the Lord look with favor on those who struggle to remain chaste in our culture; a culture that celebrates lust and disvalues human bodies.

I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. Gen 9:13

As we look at the sea of rainbows around us, we will not get angry. In compassion, we will pray for those led astray. We will pray that Christ, in His mercy, gives us the words to express His deep love for people. We will pray that the Spirit falls upon the Church to renew us and to empower us to support God’s people against the buffetings of Satan.

The rainbow reminds us, that God has not forgotten. He sees us. He loves us. He died for us. He rose on the third day, and He will return again to make all things new.

“Jesus, meek and humble of heart. Make our hearts like unto thine.”
