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

Even in the most trying circumstances you always lead the way, O Lord. May we never put you to the test and submit our will to yours as you desire only what is best for us. Amen

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