Opening Prayer

Reverend Patrick J. Conroy, S.J.

Gracious God, we give You thanks for giving us another day.

You have blessed us with all good gifts, and with thankful hearts we express our gratitude. You have created us with opportunities to serve other people in their need, to share together in respect and affection, and to be faithful in the responsibilities we have been given.

In this moment of prayer , please grant to the Members of this people's House the gifts of wisdom and discernment that, in their words and actions, they will do justice, love with mercy, and walk humbly with You.

May all that is done this day be for Your greater honor and glory.


Thought of the Week

“There is nothing that faith cannot overcome;
it triumphs over everything and, however dark the clouds may be, it breaks through to truth, holds fast to it and never lets it go.”
