Prayer from the University of Notre Dame
Almighty God, the first apostles left everything behind when Jesus invited them to follow him. Give us that same courage, so that we might follow you joyfully. Do not allow us to cling to the familiar things of this world, but instead increase our faith in your divine providence. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us! 
Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever!
