Prayer of the Day
O God, you continually increase your Church by the birth of new sons and daughters in Baptism: Grant that your family may express in their lives the richness of the paschal sacrament that they have received by faith; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
Pray for the holy ministry
For all ministers of the Church
For monastic orders throughout Christianity
For all Christians in their vocation
For the mission of the Church
The Lord almighty bless (+) us, and direct our days and our deeds in his peace.
