1)         For Church leaders, may God grant them wisdom in discerning the Father’s will, let us pray to the Lord.

2)         For civic leaders, may the Holy Spirit offer them insight in working for the true and the good, let us pray to the Lord.

FOCUS:    I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall be ever in my mouth.

In today’s Gospel, Jesus points out that sometimes changing your mind is necessary. While we should, of course, be firmly rooted and unwavering in our commitment to what is true and good, this Gospel highlights a painful reality. Sometimes we are wrong.
