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.
