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

God, I pray that my mind may constantly turn to you, so that I may always remember you when I am tempted to anger, to selfishness, to lust for power and the vanities of this world. Amen

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