Second day of the Triduum of the Seven Holy Founders
We come to you, our first Fathers, as children, disciples and friends, to learn from you how to be followers of Christ, how we can love God above all things and spend our lives in the service of others, how we can respond to every offence with pardon and return good for the evil done to us, how we can help the needy, ease the pain of the afflicted, and open our hearts in friendship, how we can build a life together, united in heart and mind, in the home of our Father.
O Holy Fathers, may your example of fraternal communion and of service to Mary, remain with us, and may your prayers support us today and every day of our lives. Amen.
Fr. Edgar Benedi-an, OSM
