Prayer for those visiting our website
Almighty and eternal God,
who created us in your own image and gave us the will to seek after all that is good, true and beautiful,
especially in the person of Our Lord Jesus Christ,
we give you thanks for the freedom of communication.
Grant, we pray you, that through our journies in this website we may be led to
charity, prayer, patience and greater understanding of each other
and that we may discern more closely, your will for your pilgrims here on earth.
To the glory of the Word made Flesh.
