Loving and creator God,
we praise and thank you for all You do and have done for us. Following Jesus our loving Saviour and in the footsteps of St Eugene, as members of the worldwide Oblate family, we seek to serve You, the Church and each other with gentleness and most importantly to serve the marginalized and abandoned people in our areas.
St Eugene urged his followers to leave “nothing un-dared” for the Gospel.
May this be our constant hope and prayer too. Inspire all members of the Oblate family to live, work and pray together so that the Good News of salvation will be seen and heard through our words and actions.
We pray especially that the Spirit of God may grant us an increase in our love and unity as Oblate Associations as we prepare for the 2nd Lay Associations Congress.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Praised be Jesus Christ and Mary Immaculate.
