Assumption-Florian Parish Bulletin December 16, 2018

“Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God.” PHILIPPIANS 4:6   St. Paul reminds us that our God is an abundant God, the ultimate giver of gifts. He promises to give us all that we need. When we trust that God will take care of us, it is easier for us to share what we have been given.
