Prayer of Abandonment in Time of Pandemic

In this time of pandemic, when many are exhausted from caring for their loved ones, Blessed Charles de Foucauld reminds us that “No matter what is encountered, it is Jesus in every situation”. For those who are feeling a loss of identity and control in their lives, may meditating on the Prayer of Abandonment give you the peace and comfort of living in Christ.

Prayer of Abandonment

Father, I abandon myself into your hands.

Do with me what you will.

Whatever you may do, I thank you.


I am ready for all. I accept all.

Let only Your will be done in me,

and in all your creatures.

I wish no more than this, O Lord.


Into your hands I commend my soul;

I offer it to you with all the love of my heart,

For I love you, Lord, and so need to give myself,

To surrender myself into your Hands,

Without reserve, and with boundless confidence,

for you are my Father. Amen.

Today and everyday



   “This is the day…. this is the day…this is the day the Lord has made…..

Let us rejoice… ”

All people have the right to feel safe when participating in any of our ministries.

Experience the Christ Initiation

“This is the most propitious time to experience the Christ Initiation. It presents us with the Opportunity to rise into a newness of life. … Let’s take some time out to experience the central event and experience the Holy Madonna and the Glorious Newborn Christ at Christmas-time!”     

Herman Adrian Spuit, The Eternal Madonna,  Jan. 15, 1984

Giving Thanks for Advent Blessings

Advent Blessings

We are about to begin the season of Advent, the time of expectancy and waiting. This year the season begins as we in the United States are finishing our Thanksgiving celebrations.

We may want to reflect on this  and continue observing our blessings during Advent and then carry this practice into the new church year. We so often overlook the little things that can truly be wonderful blessings.

CCOA is on Facebook

For all of you Facebook folks who may not know, the church has a Facebook page, and we invite you to check us out.
