Morning Intercessions

Morning Intercessions
St. Gertrude by Miguel Cabrera, CC by – SA 3.0

Compassionate God, you pursue us with relentless love. In company with St. Gertrude we ponder the sacred heart of Jesus and pray: Fill our hearts with your peace, O God. 

Attune your Church to perceive the ways your Spirit is calling young people to holiness and life in Christ. 

     Fill our hearts with your peace, O God. 

Give joy to those who are called to the single vocation. 

     Fill our hearts with your peace, O God. 

Enlighten the discernment of seminarians, novices in religious life, and lay volunteers.  

     Fill our hearts with your peace, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May the love of God hold us in peace, and may the Holy Spirit bring us together in the love of Christ. Amen.
