Day 111: The Church as the Body of Christ (787-791)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, we give you praise. We thank you. We thank you for unity. We thank you for this true oneness. Thank you for extending us not just the teachings of your Son, not just the Salvation of your Son, but thank you for extending to us this union with your Son, this communion with your Son. Thank you for the intimacy that you not only promise but that you bring to us by the gift of your Holy Spirit into our lives. Help us not only to be united more and more fully to your Son, our Lord. Help us to be united even more fully with each other. Lord God, we have been made into your Church. Help us to live as your Church. We have been made brothers and sisters. Help us to live as brothers and sisters. We have been made into one body. Help us to actually be one body. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen”
