It has been a difficult time for many in our Padua community this past week, and so our prayer is one of trust in God’s love and thanks for the way we support each other.

 God our refuge and our strength,

You are close at hand in our distress.

Meet us in these times of sorrow and lift our eyes

to the peace and light of your constant care.

We thank you for those close to us who support and love us,

for the times that we share,

for the life we receive,

and for the memories in our hearts.

May each one of us be a source of strength and love

for those who are in distress

such that God’s light can shine through

into their hearts

and into our world.
