Prayer for Jubilee Preparation
Heavenly Father, we thank you for the mile stone of 125years of the church dedicated to Mary our mother. We thank you for the tireless toiling of priests, religious and lay faithful for their breath of life into the stones of our church and the lives of our community. As we prepare our hearts, to celebrate the great Jubilee with faith, that it may be the time of grace and mercy. Give us a heart that is humble and simple, a heart that knows how to contemplate in every moment of joy and struggle, like Mary our mother and our patroness. May your holy spirit, inflame our hearts and inspire us to imitate Christ your son to grow in humility and love of our neighbors. May Mary our,mother intercedes for us. Amen.
