“A new missionary age will arise, a new springtime for the Church” — St. John Paul II, May 11, 1991.
We will be taking a summer break from Blog posts and will return on August 11. Thank you for visiting our Blog. Join us in praying for the Springtime of Faith:
Father in heaven,
renew your wonders in our time,
as though by a new Pentecost,
by sending down your Spirit upon us.
Grant that by the same Spirit
your holy Church in [name your diocese],
praying with one mind and one heart
together with Mary, the Mother of Jesus,
and guided by Sts. John XXIII and John Paul the Great,
may make present in our world
the kingdom of your Divine Son:
a kingdom of truth and life,
a kingdom of holiness and grace,
a kingdom of justice, love, and peace. Amen.
