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

Dear Father in heaven, grant Your Spirit to us, your children. May something from You be revealed on earth so that divine strength and divine truth, not what is only human, are with us in all we do. Keep courage alive in our hearts even when things look dark. May powers of peace and healing be revealed through us because You are near and Your kingdom is all around us. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
