God Our Father,
Give us strength so that, guided by Our Lady’s example,
we can have the courage to say yes to you.
Help us to love like she loved, have faith like she had
and follow Jesus’ example in all that we do.
Inspire in all of us a sense of togetherness, so that we can use the gifts
that you have given us for the good of all in our community
and bring support and healing to those less fortunate than ourselves.
We ask Our Lady to guide us, just like she guided St Bernadette,
as we seek to bring Jesus’ message of love and forgiveness to others.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, your Son, Our Lord.
