Let us remember…that we are in the holy presence of God.
+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Today we pray for those who are without a home –a place to sleep,
a place to eat, a place to laugh with friends and family.
May we work through acts of charity and programs of justice
to help provide a comfortable place for each person to call home.
In Jesus’ name, we pray,
Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us.
Live, Jesus, in our hearts – Forever!
