Prayer and Praise

A Prayer of Saint Boniface  ( Patron Saint of the Diocese )
Eternal God,
the refuge and help of all your children, we praise you for all you have given us, for all you have done for us, for all you are to us. In our weakness, you are our strength in our darkness, you are our light, in our sorrow you are comfort and peace. We cannot number your blessings, we cannot declare your love; For all your blessings we bless you. May we live in your presence, and love the things that you love, and serve you in our daily lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Renew your wonders
in this our day as by a new Pentecost. Pope John XXIII     Father, pour out your Spirit upon your people and grant us a new vision of your glory, a new experience of your power, a new faithfulness to your Word, and a new consecration to your service, that your love may grow among us, and your kingdom come: through Christ our Lord. Amen

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the
day of battle;  be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him,  we humbly pray: and do thou, prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God thrust down to hell Satan,  and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
God the Holy Spirit Comforter and Sanctifier, Melt our hearts That we may accept your love. Renew our minds That we may know your truth. Strengthen our wills That we may serve you faithfully. Through Christ our Lord. Amen
