32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time
November 12, 2017
Prayer

Lord Jesus, 
you were broken and poured out for us  and thereby showed us the way to live our lives  in full measures  of love and mercy, compassion and self-emptying.  
Give us the strength and desire to do what we know we must, 
so that we may never hear you say at the end of our lives, "I do not know you."
Amen.
