Shepherding God, by your strong arm you redeem your people. In company with your servant and bishop Athanasius we pray: Let your Spirit be upon us, O God. 

Nurture the gifts of wisdom, compassion, and love in Pope Francis, bishops, pastors, and catechists. 

Let your Spirit be upon us, O God. 

Shower adoptive and foster parents with love, support, and patience.  

Let your Spirit be upon us, O God. 

Comfort the grieving and help us to listen to the hurts of others.  

Let your Spirit be upon us, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May God increase our faith and help us to listen attentively to the voice of Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
