Most High God, in Jesus we find the source of all truth. With hope we pray: Make our boast in Christ, O God. 

Gladden those whom you have called to the religious life or priesthood.  

     Make our boast in Christ, O God.  

Strengthen the spiritual bonds between married couples. 

     Make our boast in Christ, O God. 

Expand our hearts through prayer and deep listening. 

     Make our boast in Christ, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May God strengthen us to embrace the paschal mystery with joy and hope so that we may share everlasting joy in the resurrection of Jesus. Amen.
