LORD JESUS, grant us the desire to grow in personal holiness and sanctification. Deepen our prayer life, keep us rooted in the Word of God and the Eucharist, and faithful in frequenting the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
HOLY SPIRIT, teach us to imitate Christ’s self-emptying love and obedience to the Father. Grace us to be generous, available, humble and hospitable in our service. Help us to be a forgiving community, united in love. Form us to be a people of prayer and praise, grounded in God’s love, and from which will flow our service, evangelical and missionary zeal, and works of mercy. In all that we do, we depend on Your grace.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
