Our Lady of Good Counsel
Today's feast is closely associated with the devotion of the women of Canada's CWL to Our Lady under this title. Happy Feast Days to this wonderful group of women whom I have come to know in Toronto, Halifax, Ottawa, in the Provinces of Nova Scotia and Ontario as well as on the national level. Happy Feast Day!
Collect Prayer for Today
O Lord, who know that our earthly thoughts are fearful and uncertain, grant us, through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, from whom your Son took flesh, a spirit of counsel, and by teaching us to discern your will, guide us, we pray in all we do. Through our Lord.

These next few days I will be on Canada's west coast, taking part as liaison bishop in the fourth annual assembly of the The Canadian Federation of Catholic Physicians' Societies. The theme of the convention is Moral Courage in the Practice of Medicine. For more details about the federation and the meeting, cf. http://www.canadiancatholicphysicians.com/.
