Loving God, we thank you for the light of Christ’s love that burns brightly in our hearts.
Help us to protect it and share it with great joy so that others may also experience the hope that your light brings.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, your Son.
Wednesday, May 9 - Be Joyful in Hope: In Our Family
Heavenly Father, you’re the source of all hope.
Just as the prophets called the people of the Old Testament to live lives filled with goodness,
you call us to live in goodness.
May we always be faithful to you, especially during challenging times.
Help us see all our blessings, and help us bring hope to others—especially to the people in our family.
We ask this of you, through whom all things are possible.
World Catholic Education Day, Thursday, May 10- Be Joyful in Hope: In Our School Community
God of goodness and life, you have blessed us in many ways.
We thank you for the gift of Catholic education,
and we ask you to be with each of us as we share the good news of your love and promises with the whole world.
May your presence in our school inspire each of us to be messengers of hope.
Give us the courage and generosity to respond to your call to go and teach others about you,
and help us to be disciples who go out and make disciples.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord.
Friday, May 11 - Be Joyful in Hope: In Creation
O merciful Creator, guide us in our joyful hope of fulfilling the promise of the covenant.
As people of faith, may we look to the skies and see the rainbow of promise.
Your covenant of faithfulness and love extends to the whole creation.
We pray for the healing of the Earth,
that present and future generations may enjoy the fruits of creation,
and continue to glorify and praise you;
Through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns,
one God, for ever and ever.
