Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
Dear Lord, help me every single morning to find faith in the midst of the chaos. Give me the desire and ability to see You, hear You, talk to You, and give thanks to You. We ask this in your name, Amen.
Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
