We begin in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Today, the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross is being celebrated at Holy Cross parish here in Regina and by Catholics around the world. For Christians, the cross is a symbol of faith, hope, love and sacrifice. Our faith in the resurrection of Jesus gives us courage to live as followers of Jesus. May we take time today to see how we as learners and disciples of Jesus can reflect on the ways our values, gifts and dreams are leading us in His footsteps – may we be found to act out of love.
We pray that the heart of Jesus be with us on our journey as lifelong learners:
God's presence surrounds you
May Jesus be your shield in all you do
God's Spirit protect you from all ill
A Trinity always there guiding you still.
On sea or land, in ebb or flow,
God be with you wherever you go.
In flow or ebb, on land and sea
God's great might your protecting be.
In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
