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

Shine within my heart, loving God, the pure light of your divine knowledge; open the eyes of my mind and the ears of my heart to receive your Word, this day and always. Amen

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