We thank you for loving us.
We thank you for choosing us.
We thank you for giving us the gift of Faith and Sharing.
Help us to fully receive this gift,
and allow your Spirit to fill us
and reveal yourself to us through this gift.
Jesus, we want to hear you voice.
Teach us to quiet our minds and our hearts,
teach us to listen in silence for your Word.
Jesus, we want to feel your presence.
Teach us to love your Eucharistic presence;
you who come to us in the fragility of the Eucharist.
Teach us to discover your living presence
within our own weakness and vulnerability.
Jesus, you never call us alone.
Thank you for our sisters and brothers.
Thank you for calling us together
to live the spirit of the Beatitudes.
Make us humble and full of compassion.
Bless us with the presence of you poor.
Jesus, we need you to lead us.
Guide our Faith and Sharing communities,
help us to do you will, to share your love,
and to build your kingdom.
