Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

O God, your promise to come in glory will be a reality when our hearts are one, our hands extend to one another in peace, and our earth is renewed. Be with us in this Advent moment as we celebrate this season of waiting. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us. Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
