Accept our prayers of gratitude for all our blessings, for You are the Source of Life and Light.
Forgive us our sins and aggressions against your peace, O Merciful One, for we are quick to stray from your goodness.
Transform our hearts and minds that we seek to love each other as Christ loves us.
Bend near to those whose hearts cry out to You, O Lord, especially those who have lost loved ones to senseless violence.
Lord Jesus, you modelled for us the way we are called to live: may we be converted to follow and rejoice. Blessed Savior, hear the call of your lost sheep, and bless us through your abounding mercy as we pray.
