Prayer for the UAC General Coordination Council Meeting
April 21-25, 2018
Lord God, we pray for the annual meeting of the General Coordination Council. May it be a true experience of the Cenacle, of being united with You and with one another in the love and power of the Spirit of Jesus, Your Risen Son, sustained by the accompaniment of Our Lady Queen of Apostles, of St. Vincent Pallotti, of Blessed Elisabetta Sanna, Józef Stanek and Józef Jankowski.
Help us to grow in faithfulness to Jesus' prayer that we be one, as He and You, Father, are one, and to live ever more generously his new commandment to love one another as He loves us.
We ask You to free us from any blindness, so that we may see and love each other with Your eyes and Your heart, as brothers and sisters, each created in the image and likeness of God and continually recreated in the image and likeness of God-with-us, Emmanuel, Jesus Christ Your Son.
Give us hearts capable of reading deeply the signs of the times concerning the Union at this point in its history, and of responding generously, courageously and creatively to the issues and concerns that our Pallottine Family is facing in its mission to be of true and humble service to the universal and local Church and beyond.
Grant us the spirit of discernment, so that all that we do may be guided by You, that our decisions may be the expression of nothing other than Your Will for the Union at this time for the building up of Your Kingdom in the Church and the wider world.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, in the power of the Holy Spirit, through the intercession of Mary, Queen of Apostles, and of St. Vincent Pallotti.
