Prayer of the Day

Great God,
give us the kind of faith in you
that was the mainstay of those before us
who followed you from
Galilee to Jerusalem doing good,
raising the dead to life
and singing alleluia all the way.
God of Conscience,
God of Courage
give us whatever grace we need
to work for the coming
of the reign of God
now, here and always.


Joan Chittister, OSB
