Columban Daily Prayer
January 16, 2024

O God, through the intercession of Saint Joseph Vaz:
Give us the discerning spirit and gifts of the Holy Spirit:
love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,
trustfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Increase our faith and enable us to grow
in virtues of prudence, justice temperance and fortitude.
Send us angels full of love and affection.
Give us the strength to preserve Your creation,
our common home and work for the sustainability of our planet.
Grant us the wisdom to work in unity with people
of all races and religions, and to do our part to remove
social and economic inequalities, to assist
the marginalized and abandoned, and to bring about
peace and harmony.
