Vibrant Church Prayer

Risen Lord,
We come to you
as the disciples on the road to Emmaus:
changed by what has happened
and concerned about what is to come.
We ask you to grant us the same grace
you granted the travelers so many years ago:
the grace to recognize You in each other.
Help us to gather and to stay around one table
in a spirit of openness and collaboration.
Grant that, as members of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati,
we may confide our hopes and fears in each other
for the good of all
and move forward with your grace.
Grant also that we may walk
with our hearts burning inside us,
ready to spread new life in your resurrection.
We ask this in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.
