Prayer for the 178th Birth Anniversary of Fr. Leo John Dehon

Lord Jesus,
you opened your heart to our Founder,
Leo John Dehon,
and he responded in love.
He offered his life to you:
working to restore a broken world, proclaiming your abundant love,
and founding a congregation
to live a life of love and reparation in the world.

inspired by our Founder’s example,
we offer you our community,
our ministry,
and ourselves.
May we be faithful in our vocation to work for the building of your reign in human hearts
and in society. Amen.
