Saviour and light of all people keep those on the missions under your special care- may the light of the Holy Spirit burn strongly within them. Lord in your mercy.

In thanksgiving for the fruits of the earth and the sea at this harvest time - may we always appreciate the abundance of God in nature and give him thanks for and say our Grace before Meals. Lord in your mercy.
