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

God, Help me to understand how to “celebrate” this holy week. I want to be able to bring my weaknesses and imperfections with me as I journey with Jesus this week, so aware of his love. Amen

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