A PRAYER BY FR. GREGORY

Father of the little ones, we pray for all people who have been abused by those they trusted. May we be your healing instruments in their lives.

Jesus, our Good Shepherd, raise up in your Church shepherds after your own heart who will guide us to greater knowledge and love of you. Call forth leaders from among your flock who will be true servants. Purge from the shepherds of your Church all vestiges of clericalism and careerism and guard the gate of your sheepfold against wolves that will harm your people.

Lord, we thank you for the gift of our Baptism, which makes us members of your Body, the Church. Give us the grace to take responsibility for the holiness of your Church by our pursuit of the spiritual disciplines that will strengthen us as intentional disciples. Draw us into deeper intimacy with you, the Source of our salvation, through prayer and the study of your Word in Scripture. As members of your Body, may we truly be your hands, your feet, and your heart, so that your Church may be a light of hope to all nations.

Amen.
