In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Today we celebrate the feast of St. Simon and St. Jude who were followers of Jesus who tried to model the compassion Jesus showed them.
In our relationships with our family,
May we always think of others before we think of ourselves,
May we follow you in the path of service
by having compassion for those who are having difficulties.
Bless us in our journey to become more like you
in humility, service and compassion
Spirit of the Living God, in every age,
You inspire people of faith.
Be with us in the common, ordinary events of the day.
Enlighten us to find You hidden in unlikely people and places.
Help us to surprise one another with joy and gladness. We ask this through Jesus, the Christ, our Lord.
Let us pray to Mary, Our model of humility:
Full of grace,
The Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women
and Blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God,
Pray for us sinners now
and at the hour of our death. Amen.
In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
