Day 173: Brothers and Sisters in Baptism (1267-1274)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, we give you praise and glory. We thank you so much for the gift of your Son, Jesus Christ and the gift of your Holy Spirit you have poured out on the face of this Earth and you have poured into our hearts. We ask you to please unite us even more perfectly to your Church. Unite us even more perfectly to each other. Help us to see that we belong to each other, not only by virtue of our belonging to the human race, but even more particularly and even more powerfully that we belong to each other because of our fellowship, our friendship, and even our brotherhood in the fact that you have made us into your sons and daughters. Help us to know that you are our Father. Help us to live as if we are truly brothers and sisters. We make this prayer in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen”
