DAY 2
MORNING PRAYER 
Heavenly Father,
As we enter into holy week allow us to focus with all of our strength 
on the passion of our beloved Lord, Jesus Christ. 
May the remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice for all 
encourage us to give in love and service to others. 
When our lives are afflicted with suffering, 
give us courage to carry the cross. 
When others show us injustice, 
give us resilience to pursue the truth. 
Guide us always through the Holy Spirit, 
and form us in the likeness of your son. 
With Mary we pray, 
Amen
