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

We pray to You,
Lord God of Life and of those who Hope!
Listen to our prayer for the whole world,
for peace among all peoples,
for prosperity in all lands.
We pray to You that evil may be overcome,
and that all wars may end.
We pray to You especially for the members
of our Lasallian Family
who suffer from war, injustice and intolerance,
and for the children
and young people
who are poor and neglected.
Lord, give us Your peace!

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
