O Christ, you gave you life on the cross to overcome evil and injustice. May your abundant love inspire those who volunteer and work in food pantries and other feeding programs in our community. May they offer both kindness and respect to those who depend on the food they provide. 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.
