send your Holy Spirit upon us as we prepare for our General Chapter.
May we be open
to receiving your Light and Strength and respond faithfully to your Will.
May your Inspiration
be present to help us make the right decisions to continue to serve our brothers and sisters with hospitality, in the manner of Saint John of God.
Accept our humble prayer.
Bless our readiness to continue to build inclusive and safe spaces where all can benefit from the gift of hospitality.
Strengthen our commitment
to developing the charism inspired by Saint John of God, by continuing to manifest the merciful dimension of God’s love through acts of welcome and service.
in the midst of a changing world, may we boldly proclaim the Good News, united as Brothers and Coworkers, and may the seeds of hospitality we sow, continue to grow and flourish.
We ask this
through Christ our Lord.
