Fr. Stephen Blaxon, Pastor of Holy Family Parish in Sandusky, offered the following invocation:

 

泥EAR Lord, the summer is over and gone, and the harvest is once more past. All the wealth and warmth of the summer sun is marvelously packaged now, in seed and fruit and vegetable, and stored away in bins and cribs and basements.

Thank You, dear, generous God, for all Your goodness and for all Your gifts. All summer long You are working for us, storing heat and health and nourishment in the fields and woods. Now, when the air is cold, and there is no fruitfulness in the earth, we can live on what the summer and the harvest have stored up for us.

Thank You for Your unnumbered kindnesses to us, dear God. Help us to make good use of the riches of the earth. Help us to be generous, even as You are, and always avoid selfishness and greed.

Help us, too, to store up spiritual wealth in the summer of this life, while we can yet work. Otherwise life痴 autumn will come, death will call us, a spiritual winter will set in and we shall be found poor and unsheltered not for one season only, but for the winters of eternity.

Lord, we trust in You, that, cooperating with Your many graces, we may make good use now of our rich opportunities. And may we then reap a rich spiritual harvest which we will enjoy with You and Your saints in the eternal spring and summer of heaven.

O GOD, from Whom all power comes, by Whose divine will all must abide, we thank You for our civil liberties and freedom, for our opportunities and our privileges.

We beg of You to bless, assist, and enlighten the Senators from our State and the Congressman for our District. May they prove worthy of the confidence placed in them by their fellow citizens. May they be just and upright in their thinking, honest in all their actions, and ever be guided by a true conscience in the legislation they propose or vote upon.

Forgive us all our mistakes and selfish tendencies, and help prepare us by our good deeds for an eternal union with You, through Christ our Lord.

May Almighty God Bless you: the Father, and the Son +, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
