“Why did you do this? Because you fell in love with Jesus, you saw everything in him, and enraptured by his gaze, you left the rest behind. Religious life is this vision. It means seeing what really matters in life. It means welcoming the Lord’s gift with open arms"

Loving and Generous God,
it is You who call us by name
and ask us to follow You.
Help us to grow in the Love
and Service of our Church
as we experience it today.
Give us the energy and courage of your Spirit to shape its future.
Grant us faith-filled leaders
who will embrace Christ's Mission
of love and justice.
Inspire us to know you better
and open our hearts to hear your call.
We ask this through our Lord.
