May Christmas deepen our walk together in Jesus. May we allow the light of the Spirit to make us missionary disciples of God’s Love.
God of infinite mercy grant us a missionary spirit and
send us forth to encounter our sisters and brothers:
to walk with them in friendship to listen to their hopes and dreams with compassion to proclaim your Word with courage.
Stay with us always as we seek to share the joy of the Gospel with people of all generations, from every race, language, culture and nation.
We ask you this with burning hearts, filled with the Holy Spirit through the loving intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Adapted from V Encuentro prayer
God is rich in mercy. Because of his great love for us, we have life, we have hope, we have peace in Christ, for, in Jesus, the barrier of hostility is breaking down. We are members of the same family.
