Every day we need you, Lord, but today especially, we need some extra strength to face whatever is to come.
This day, more than any other day, we need to feel you near us to strengthen our Courage and to overcome any fear.
By ourselves we cannot meet the challenge of the hour.
We are frail human creatures, and we need a Higher Power to sustain us in all that life may bring.
And so, dear Lord, hold our trembling hands.
Be with us, Lord, this day and stretch out your powerful arm to help us.
May your love be upon us as we place all our hope in you. Amen.
(Adapted from a Prayer by St. John XXIII)
Fr. Paul R. Fagan, C.P.
