Diocesan Prayer


DIOCESE OF SAN DIEGO

 

Lord, Jesus,

through the intercession of our patron saints,

San Diego and Our Lady of Refuge,

we beg you for a outpouring of the Holy Spirit

upon all of us called to be your disciples

and members of your Church.

 

Bless us to be obedient servants,

as you were obedient

in loving response to the Father’s love,

and to love one another

as you have first loved us.

 

Bless us with happy marriages and holy families,

with bishops, religious, deacons and priests

to image your presence among us,

and with dedicated lay people,

both married and single, to be signs of your love in the world.

 

Help us to embrace the mission you have entrusted to us,

in lives of fidelity, holiness and compassion.

 

San Diego, pray for us.

Our Lady of Refuge, pray for us.
