2017 Annual Catholic Appeal Prayer
Live in Faith – Give in Love
God our Creator, Giver of all good gifts, we praise and glorify you.
Teach us to acknowledge always, and with enduring gratitude, the many blessings your infinite love has showered upon us. Widen our vision and enliven our generosity, as we seek to support the pastoral and charitable works of our diocese in Brooklyn and Queens.
All-loving Father, Fountain of Mercy, we honor and adore you.
Open our hearts to welcome the Holy Spirit, who enables us to live in faith and give in love, so that the joy of the Gospel may penetrate every heart in our local communities.
Open our eyes and stir up in us your compassion, so that all may come to know your Son, Jesus Christ, the way, the truth and the life, now and forever.
