A Prayer for Lasallians

In faith, Lord we believe that:

Your work is our work and we are a vital part of it.

You have granted us the gift of spreading the Gospel to all

but especially to the poor and the young.

A Gospel adventure uniquely experienced by each person.

A Gospel pilgrimage open and receptive to the different

creeds and cultures of our world.

We want to be Lasallians without limits.

Difficulties and challenges confront us

just as during our Founder's time.

Like the disciples on the road to Emmaus,

we may be slow of heart to believe.

Yet, you Lord, still believe in us, question us,

challenge us and send us,

making our hearts burn within us.

We Lasallians, regardless of our age,

are filled with hope and joy for the mission.

We rejoice as the mission expands

through the ever-widening circle of Lasallians.

We celebrate new educational initatives

and ministries reaching out to the poor.

Yes, Lord, we have been witnesses to your great love

since the time of our charismatic founding.

That event has convinced us that great things are still possible.

We thank you for having called and sent us again and again

to return to Jerusalem, to live the promise of vitality,

to live our vision, our passion, and our future

for the mission you have entrusted to us.

Amen.
