Centennial Convocation Prayer
(Refer to your prayer card in three languages)
Lord Jesus Christ, when the world was growing cold, you raised up blessed Francis, bearing in his body the marks of your suffering to warm our hearts with the fire of your love. Help us always to turn to you with true hearts, and for love of you to bear the cross; who with the Father and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, One God, forever and ever. Amen.
