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

All-knowing God, kindly share Your knowledge with me,
Making me aware of what is meant to be,
Permitting my soul to understand it,
And wisdom to agree with its outcome.
Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
