Eternal Father, whose compassion and justice are without end,
give us compassion for all who are in poverty and need.
Your wish is for all of your children to live with dignity,
with adequate food, shelter, healthcare and education.
Inspire us as we take up your work as a Lasallian community of faith
and guide us as we seek to bring justice and sow peace in our world.
Saint John Baptist de la Salle, pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts forever.
