The Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist pray for the Lord’s abiding presence

HOLY LAND – The prayer below is from the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist for the 6th Week of Easter.

Let's pray:

"Lord, after your Resurrection you stayed with us in body. As we anticipate your Ascension and the coming of your Holy Spirit, may we always be aware of our need for you in our lives and in our world - for your direction, strength, and help. Amen."

The Religious Families of the Holy Land, in collaboration with the Pastoral Office of the Latin Patriarchate, share a weekly prayer with the faithful that tackles a pertinent theme. The intention can be included in the prayer of the faithful (also in Vespers or Lauds).
