Lord, Your gospel was planted in our country with the help of matrys like Isaac. Help us to keep the cross standing in our midst particularly when there is suspicion and anxiety. Make us workers for peace even if this can be costly. Let us trust your resurrection over death more than our own power or might. We ask this through Christ Our Lord, Amen.
Marianist 3 O'Clock Prayer
You were lifted up on the wood of the cross to draw all people to yourself; you shed your life's blood so that sin may be forgiven and we might have life to the full.
By embracing this holy mystery of our salvation, may we become your beloved disciples, accepting from your outstretched arms your gift of Mary as our Mother.
May we learn from her, to treasure and ponder your Cross and Resurrection so that one day, with you as our Lord and God, with John our patron and model, and with Mary, our joy and our hope, we may all be gathered together around the Tree of Eternal Life.
And may the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit be glorified in all places through the Immaculate Virgin Mary. Amen.
