Pioneer Catholic Schedule & Meditation: Sept. 25-29

Happy Sunday, Pioneers!

 

I know the semester isn’t getting any easier, but don’t forget to take time to relax and breathe. Saint Padre Pio said, “Pray, hope, and don’t worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer.”

Worrying only makes things harder. Do your best, and God will take care of the rest. Pray, and He will help you!

I have two meditations for you this week. Click one, or click both. It is up to you!
