PRAYER FOR THE JUBILEE

OF 60 YEARS

OF THE DIOCESE OF WILLEMSTAD

 

Lord God, our loving Father,

with great joy we thank you for the 60th Anniversary of our Diocese. During all these years, You have guided us with your goodness and grace, uplifting our lives and enriching our different cultures. You have blessed our islands at all times even in trying times.

 

Hear our prayer and renew the presence and power of your Spirit in us so that we might become a forgiving and reconciling church, obedient to your will and seeking justice, reaching out in a mission of mercy to all the people specially the poor and the needy in an encounter of love and brotherhood.

 

Transform our hearts, and make us grow united in a community of disciples and missionaries of your Son Jesus Christ to enable us to proclaim the Good News so that all peoples may come to know Him as their Lord and Saviour.

 

May we your Church with the intercession of Mary Immaculate, our mother, remain your true and living witness to the world. This we ask You through your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
