Blessed Savior, we gather around your altars to praise you and embody your love in the world. Alleluia! Bless and keep us this day, that we may serve You with our hands and our hearts. Give us the wisdom to live into the questions of our lives, and the strength to examine our convictions. Help us to plant the seeds of faith deeply into the soil of reason, tradition, and witness, that we may grow into a mature faith. Grant peace and encouragement this day, O God, for all whom we remember at this hour.
