Lord, Jesus Christ, you who are our only Pastor, founded in Peter, the firm rock, your only Church that today has spread throughout the world and with joy plants the seed of your Epistle,Grant that this mission, not lacking in persecutions and barriers, with the help of the Holy Spirit,advances securly, rowing through the sea, until reaching a safe port.
Today, in the preparing and the fulfilling of the VII medical and evangelization missión, in your name, we begin this journey, very grateful with you, for all the fruits that we have received through this Brotherhood between the Parishes of Saint Rita and Virgen de los Remedios, we gather, each longing to be a living stone in the building of your Church, to be bread divided and shared.
Make us strong in faith, grant us a firm and missionary spirit to sow your Word with our words and actions, especially with our brothers and sisters whom we encounter in this missión and have the opportunity to know, love and serve. In a special manner,
we place in your hands, the sick that come forward seeking health, that you will heal them oftheir illnesses and injuries, through our gestures of love and service with a humble and simple heart, we offer this up to you, Who is present in each one of them.
You, who prays to your Father, who is our Father “so that they may all be one, as you Father are in me and I in you, that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that you sent me.” Jn 17:21, we ask you for the Church in America and in a special way, the communities of St. Rita and Virgen de los Remedios, that each day we grow in unity, communion, missión and solidarity, strengthening the brotherhood that unites these two parish communities as a single family. Heavenly Father, bless the missionaries and their families, that their efforts be carried out with love of the fruits of the Kingdom and always grant us an opening, obedience and wisdom to strengthen your missionary Church, that united with you, who are the path to our conversión, communion and solidarity, we may be humble continuators of your saving missionin the way of St. Rita and Virgen Maria de los Remedios and each day we may be for our brothers bread divided and shared, thereby being builders of life and hope for our most needy brothers.
Thru Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen
