Anyone who does not accept the cross is not worthy of Jesus. Are we willing to embrace the cross and follow after Him? (Matthew 10:37-42)
PRAYER FOR SOUTHERN AFRICA:
send forth your Spirit upon us the people of Southern Africa. May we hear anew the voice of Jesus Christ, inviting us to walk with him across the turbulent waters of our time: “Courage, it is I. Do not be afraid.” By the grace of the Holy Spirit empower us to bring comfort to the restless, hope to those who despair, healing to victims of violence, and reconciliation where there is division. May the Holy Spirit heal our families and communities. Grant us ethical and courageous leaders who put the good of the people before their own interest. We ask for your grace to guide us to speak the truth with courage, to act justly in all we do, to share with those in need and always and everywhere to respect your gift of life as we strive to proclaim the values of the Kingdom, in solidarity with all people of goodwill. We ask this through Christ Our Lord.
