I come before You to thank You for the gift of holiness.
I rediscover each day the graces and blessings bestowed,
to know how to witness to Your presence.
Yes, I am faced with difficulty and troubles
caused by illness or distress or sorrow.
Sustain me and keep me aware of the path to holiness,
a way of compassionate justice,
a way to grow in Love.
I pray as a child of Faith,
to remain attentive and respond with Joy
to the call You made.
I pray as a parent and a grandparent,
signs of my fatherhood and motherhood.
You entrusted me with the care of body and soul of my family
and I understand that the family can give the world well-being.
Grant that each family takes the path of holiness,
to be just and merciful
and answers the call to become apostles
in the service of Peace
and the confidence of Hope
in communion with all persons.
Indeed it is.
