PRAYER – Almighty Father, let Your light so penetrate our minds, that walking by Your commandments, we may always follow You, our leader and our guide. Turn our hearts to see Your Son who “goes before us” and help us to never lose sight of His saving way. May the prayers of all Your holy ones in heaven, who are our examples and those of Blessed Gregory, be of assistance to us as we walk our earthly journey. We make our prayer through Christ, our Lord, amen.
