A prayer from Br. Alois:

God of love, you have placed a longing in us, and we offer it to you as our prayer. Send your Holy Spirit so that we may live in a way that is no longer centred on ourselves. May your Spirit make our hearts attentive to those who are hoping for consolation.

May you have a Blessed Triduum!

Enable us to stand in solidarity with those who suffer, and who live today in fear and anxiety. Sustain the hope of all those, in this beloved part of the world, who seek justice and peace. Send the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of peace, to inspire the leaders of nations and all human beings.
