I spent the evening with saints. They came in 3 waves. This is the first: the parish prayer shawl ministry, evening edition. They have handmade and given out over 600 prayer shawls. This wonderful group of saints, along with the daytime group, prays before beginning, prays as they work, and prays over the finished product -- not that the shawl is a talisman, mind you, but that the person to whom it is given might know that he or she is enfolded in the love of God. Sick, alone, afraid, grieving? Let the prayer shawl ministry know and their eager souls and talented hands will work to help you understand that God's love enfolds you.
Msgr. William J. King
