Holy God, you shed light upon our path by the faith-filled lives of holy men and women. In company with St. Benedict and all the saints we pray: O God, lead us to life. 

Make your Church a place of welcome for all people.  

     O God, lead us to life. 

Give courage to those who experience a call to the monastic or apostolic religious life.  

     O God, lead us to life. 

Transform the hearts and minds of all the baptized by the light of your grace.  

     O God, lead us to life. 

Our Father . . . 

May we prefer nothing to the love of Christ, and may he bring us together to everlasting life. Amen.
