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

Jesus, I give to you my anxiety and my fear, my depression and my doubt, for you have promised to take them if we only ask; and I take upon myself your burden, for it is light and your way is gentle.  Amen

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