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

Lord Jesus Christ, watch over those who are leaders in Your Church. Keep them faithful to their vocation and to the proclamation of Your message. Teach them to recognize and interpret the signs of the times. Strengthen them with the gifts of the Spirit, and help them to serve their subjects, especially the poor and lowly. Give them a vivid sense of Your presence in the world and a knowledge of how to show it to others. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
