Day 267: The Church as Mother and Teacher (2030-2036)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, we know that through your Son, Jesus Christ, you established a Church on Earth. And by the power of your Holy Spirit, you have guided and continue to guide the teaching office of the Church. We ask that you please help us to have hearts that are teachable, help us to have hearts that are guidable, that are leadable, that are docile to your Word, hearts that are open to being taught so that our lives can be transformed, so that our lives truly can be offered in spiritual worship. Help so that we can present our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, because our wills are conformed to your will. And we know that will through your Word, given to us through Sacred Scripture, and through your teaching, given to us through Sacred Tradition. Lord God, help us to be docile, help us to be open, help us to be led straight to your heart. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen”
