How is God inviting me to be part of his story? Who am I and how have I been called into God’s purposes for the world? Take time to reflect.
God, deepen our understanding, through contemplation and prayer, of our purpose and not what we live for but whom we are called to serve.
God, help us to be contemplative and interpret daily life with the heart of God and to live every moment as a time of grace and salvation.
God, in our pluralistic world let us seek inventive ways to announce the Gospel; the witness of a Christian presence and fraternal relations.
Give thanks to the Father, for He is good, He created the world with wisdom, He leads His people throughout history, Misericordes sicut Pater!

Holy Spirit – illumine our minds and hearts to see and appreciate what God is doing in the world and to see the world as God sees it. Amen.
In prayerful decision making, in discernment, may we be guided by the Word of God, to know, to listen, to put into practice God’s call to us.
Paul asks, “What should I do, Lord?” but first exercises the willingness to”get up” because that is the first response required (Acts 22:10)

May we witness hope and love for those people entrusted by God to our care and those on the fringes of society who cry out for our presence.
It is the Spirit who empowers, comforts and encourages us. It is the Spirit that gives us insight, wisdom, understanding, and discernment…
Jesus, we are rooted in your Gospel and you call us to a life of mission and finding our meaning through a continuous conversion to new life.
God, open us daily to recognize your presence and the Spirit’s action in creation. Let us proclaim it as well to those we encounter today.
God, you call us, personally and as a community, to respond to the unmet needs of today. May your Spirit awaken in us a desire to serve you.

To speak of the cross is a reminder to us that the calling of God, in Christ, will require sacrifice. We might have to let go and let God.

Life-giving God, may our lives witness Christ & the goodness of the Church as we seek to grow & live in service to the entire people of God.
God, you call us to live out our mission as a witness, a service, and a communion. Be with us in this work to build up the Church & society.
Eternal God, in our weakness, your are our strength; in our darkness, you are our light. May we always live in your presence and serve you.
Deliver us Lord. Let there be revealed, in the history of the world the infinite saving power of the Redemption: the power of merciful love!
The joy of the Gospel is a surprise. Jesus’ life and the lives of the other great biblical personalities are full of unexpected surprises.
Where should I focus my time and energy? God, give me clarity and courage to respond to your call and focus on pursuing my purpose & passion.
God, we live in a constantly changing and crises-filled world. Help us respond in faith & witness your great love through our words & deeds.
