Morning Intercessions

Morning Intercessions

God our savior, we celebrate your presence in and among us as we commemorate the Lateran Basilica. In joy we pray: Shine your light on your Church, O God. 

Fill Pope Francis with your Spirit, and awaken us to the wisdom of his teaching.  

     Shine your light on your Church, O God. 

Inspire catechesis and spiritual enrichment for parishioners. 

     Shine your light on your Church, O God. 

Heal divisions among Christians, and unite us in love and zeal for the Gospel. 

     Shine your light on your Church, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May God fashion us into the temple of the Holy Spirit and strengthen us to bring the love and peace of Christ to the world. Amen.
