From Reverend Thomas O’Hara, C.S.C.
Dear Lord, you remind us that it is not just our actions, but our attitudes and thoughts that can lead us astray. Be with us this day; send your peace into our hearts and minds so that throughout this day we are ever more aware of your gentle and loving presence in our lives. For we know our awareness of your presence within us keeps us from those thoughts, actions and attitudes that can too easily lead us astray. We pray this to you, Our God, forever and ever. Amen.

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