Prayer for the 2016 General Chapter

Adventure with the Spirit

God of our past, our present, our future,

you call us from a future abundant in grace, full of challenge,

and rich in possibility.

You invite us to leave the familiar, to forge new paths,

to risk moving forward with the destination uncertain. 


Grant us continually renewed fidelity

to the radical call of the Gospel and to our founding charism.

Help us to listen deeply as we discern together our response

to the needs of our community, the church, and the world today.


Launch us anew with passionate love.

Give us a daring spirit.

Fill us with hope.
