Every morning the Assembly in Bologna starts with a morning prayer. Pray with us now the new European Council for Lay Dominican Fraternities will be choosen today.
Lord Jesus Christ, You are the light of the world.
We are torchbearers,
Bringing your light to our brothers and sisters
Help us to keep the flame burning.
Help us to build bridges, and not walls;
to illuminate and warm, and not to raise barriers.
Teach us to cross the borders between nations,
between languages, between generations, between the sexes,
between religious and laity,
between those who love the past
and those who long for the future.
May we be true followers of Dominic,
bringing your Word to all those we meet.
We ask this in your name.
Join us in the celeberations of today: Liturgy book 24 May 2014.
