Loving God, by our baptism into your family you call us by name to follow you. Open our hearts and minds to your designs. Give us the strength we need to live a life in union with you and with others. Help us to live lives of loving service.
By the shedding of His Precious Blood, Christ has shown love for the world and each person. With your love, help each person to respond courageously and generously to your call. Continue to send dedicated persons to spread the Gospel. May prophets and missionaries rise up among us.
St. Gaspar, Missionary and Founder of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood, pray for us.
