Addendum…

A reader asked for suggestions on how to include our Father in our family events, especially when family members may be away from the Church, indifferent, or hostile to the faith. Here were my suggestions, which I thought added clarity to the post and might benefit others.

Perhaps one person silently inviting the Father, Son, and Spirit into the gathering or event in the Divine Will on behalf of all present, is the best we can do. For God it will be enough for now, as we pray for the conversion of those in our spiritual territory. As for grace at meals, if others are offended by the grace we offer, we can suggest a moment of silent gratitude and silently pray our grace in the Divine Will on behalf of all there. We need to be creative I think. But let us make a conscious effort to remember our Father in all our activities. And if we forget–and we will forget–perhaps three Our Fathers in reparation could be prayed at the end of the day. Our guardian angels can be enlisted to help us remember. They just need to be asked!

  2. I think of God often through out the day and thanks him often. It might be simple like seeing the sunrise And thanking him for the beauty of it. I thank him for many things to myself. Or have conversations -in my mind. I don’t answer for him because I don’t know what he say but it’s a friend type conversation maybe when I’m cooking or driving.
