“I AM THE SERVANT OF THE LORD. MAY IT BE DONE TO ME ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD” (Lk 1:38)
You call us to live our lives
as a way of salvation.
Help us to recall the past with gratitude,
to embrace the present with courage,
and to build the future with hope.
Lord Jesus, our friend and brother,
thank you for looking upon us with love.
Let us listen to your voice
as it resonates in the hearts of each one
with the light and strength of the Holy Spirit.
Grant us the grace to be a Church that goes forth
with vibrant faith and a youthful face
to announce the joy of the Gospel.
May we help to build the society we long for,
full of justice and fraternal love.
We pray for the Pope and the bishops,
for priests and deacons,
for those in consecrated life, for volunteers,
for young people, and all who will participate
in the upcoming World Youth Day in Panama,
and for those who are preparing to receive them.
Our Lady of Antigua, Patroness of Panama,
help us to pray and live generously like you:
“I am the servant of the Lord.
May it be done to me according to your word” (Lk 1:38).
