O wise and gentle God,
who led John Baptist de la Salle from one commitment to another
And so inspired him to found a community of people dedicated to the Christian education of young people,
especially the poor and marginalised.
Grant that through his intercession and example,
We may be animated by an ardent zeal to rescue young people from the difficulties of our times,
by touching their hearts and providing them with an education founded on the Gospel.
May we creatively renew and recreate the work begun by John Baptist de la Salle and his first community.
May we be open to the guidance and radical demands of your Spirit as we address the needs of all people within our Lasallian community.
