Day 253: Participation in Public Life (1913-1927)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, we praise you and we glorify your name. In the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, we ask that you please help us. Help us to see where it is we have a circle of influence and where we merely have a circle of interest. We ask that you please help us in that circle of influence to act in whatever way is best, not just for ourselves, and for those who are close to us, but also for the common good. Help us to act in whatever way is best for the most amount of people. Help us to always take responsibility for our individual and personal participation in our society, in your Church, and in the way in which you desire to save the world. Jesus, please send us your Holy Spirit. Send your Holy Spirit upon the earth and renew the face of the earth. Pour forth your Spirit into our hearts, into our minds. And help us take responsibility for the tasks and the positions, the roles that you have given to us. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen”
