God of our ancestors, you favored your children Joachim and Anne to parent the Mother of Jesus. With them we pray: Show us the path of life, O God. 

Inspire fruitful dialogue between Pope Francis and the laity.  

     Show us the path of life, O God. 

Increase our awareness and response to the interests andneeds of the young and most vulnerable in the Churchand society.  

     Show us the path of life, O God. 

Deepen our faith in Jesus, and expand our spiritual imagination.  

     Show us the path of life, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May God bless us with all the gifts of the Spirit we need to grow in love, justice, and holiness, through Jesus our brother. Amen.
