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

Lord we give you this day and all that is in it. Please go before us. Help us to remember to make time, to take in the beauty that surrounds us. May we take pleasure in simple moments and small victories. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
