Lord, at times, we may turn away from You,
but we also find in You mercy and
forgiveness if we turn to You.
Many who have gone before us, in particular,
Mary, the Mother of Your Son, have shown us
that being disciples of Your Son will require
that we suffer with Him so that we may
also be glorified with Him.
Help us to be more like Your Son in our daily lives.
Help us make the right choices so that we may
join you in Heaven for eternity.
- A Columban Missionary
