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

Glory be to the Father, Who by His almighty power and love created me, making me in the image and likeness of God.
Glory be to the Son, Who by His Precious Blood opened for me the gates of heaven.
Glory be to the Holy Spirit, Who has sanctified me in the sacrament of Baptism, and continues to sanctify me by the graces I receive daily from His bounty. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
