In today’s world,
our families are pulled
in many different directions.
We are challenged by hard choices
as we struggle to keep the model of Nazareth
at the center of our homes.
So we pray…
Gathered together
in charity and united
by the Body of Christ,
we pray for ourselves
and all the members
of our parish family.
Lord, give us hearts
that are faithful
and faith-filled.
Lord, give us the courage
to hold fast
to the teachings of the gospel,
the precepts of your Church and the strength to pass
them on to our children.
you are the Good Shepherd. Seek out the stray lambs
and carry them home
on your shoulders.
This we humbly ask in the name of Jesus the Lord.
