Renewing God, by your hand the stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. In faith we pray:  

Open our hearts, O God.  

Guide your Church to greater understanding and implementation of Catholic social teaching. 

Open our hearts, O God. 

Prosper efforts to care for orphans, widows, and all those caught in the crossfire of war. 

Open our hearts, O God. 

Inspire us to visit the sick and companion our elders. 

Open our hearts, O God.  

Our Father . . .  

May God enrich our lives with every gift of the Spirit and lead us along paths of peace, through Jesus our redeemer. Amen.
