Dear Our Lady of Refuge Family,
This page of our website will highlight articles and information celebrating the “Year of Faith”. Our Worship Commission will share this responsibility to bring you “reverent and spiritual food for thought” throughout this “New Evangelization”.
As the Year of Faith closes
We begin the Year of the New Evangelization!!
Evangelization Prayer – written by Pope Benedict XVI
Holy Mary, Mother of God, you have given the world its true light,
Jesus, your Son, the Son of God.
You abandoned yourself completely to God’s call and thus became a wellspring of the goodness which
flows forth from Him.
Show us Jesus. Lead us to Him. Teach us to know and love Him,
so that we too can become capable of true love and
be fountains of living water in the midst of a thirsting world.
In moments of hesitation, remind me:
If not me, then who will proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
If not now, then when will the Gospel be proclaimed?
If not the truth of the Gospel, then what shall I proclaim?
God, our Father, I pray that through the Holy spirit I might hear the call of the New Evangelization to
deepen my faith, grow in confidence to proclaim the Gospel and boldly witness to the saving grace of
Your Son, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever
and ever. Amen.
