We all have suffering and, when we suffer, we
may pull away from God and others; we may lose
hope. Yet, as Catholics, we are unified in our belief that
God is always with us - even during our suffering when it feels as though we are
completely alone. Hope is the tie that binds us together
as Christians - hope in God lifting up the lowly and hope in knowing that He is always with us.
God of Hope,
us to remember that you are with us in our suffering.
Help us to embody hope for
when hopelessness is a
frequent unwelcomed guest in our hearts.
Grant us the gift of being
grounded in your loving Spirit,
as we work together
against all forms of oppression and
Give us the courage to love
how you love,
and to express this love in
Through Christ Our Lord.
