Gracious and loving God,
We praise You for the gift of Your love made manifest in Your Son, and for the gift of Your Holy Spirit, Who binds us in unity through the richness of our diversity.
We praise You for the gift of Our Lady, the Virgin Mary of Guadalupe, whom we honor as Patroness of the Americas.
Give us the wisdom to follow her example; to be good stewards of our faith, our Church, and of all those in need of Your loving care.
Teach us how to respond generously, with courage, prudence, and hope.
And guide us on our pilgrim journey with Our Lady, who shows us the way to Your Son in justice and peace.
We pray this through Christ, Our Lord.
