Pope’s Intention (evangelisation): We pray that every baptized person may be engaged in evangelisation, available to the mission, by being witnesses of a life that has the flavour of the Gospel.
Thank you, Lord, for this day.
May I live it in the spirit of the gospel, Looking on everyone I meet with friendliness and compassion.
May I live it also in care for the earth, given to us to enjoy; may I be grateful for all the earth gives me.
Give joy and peace to all I meet this day.
I pray this with Mary, mother of the Church.
Thank you for today, for all the ways in which I have known you.
For the sunrise and the birdsong.
For the music I’ve heard and the things I’ve enjoyed.
For the meals, and for the home I live in.
For my close family and for my special friends.
Most of all, thank you for being beside me through each moment.
May I dream good dreams and arise again tomorrow
To thank you once more.
