A Catechist's Prayer
Father of all families, you have called me to serve the family in truth and love as a catechist.
May I be faithful to this call, rooted in your Word and open to the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
May I use these gifts, espeically the gifts of faith, hope and love to serve the family
as witness to you, who are love and life and the source and destiny of all families.
Let your Spirit enlighten my mind and strengthen my heart so that I can be a path of Christ's love to families, espeically those in need, the homebound and aged, the disabled and disheartened.
Through the intercession of Mary and Jospeh, I pray for the Church, the bride of Christ,
whose mission to build a civilization of love passes thhorugh the family.
