Prayer Offered for May 2, 2022

In the 15th century, the Venerable Sor Juana de la Cruz said, “I don’t study to know more, but to ignore less.”

Gracious and merciful God, today we thank You that today’s Latino Spirit Awardees have not ignored the needs of Your people, but have used their education and knowledge to build up their communities and contribute to bringing justice and peace to our world.

May they continue to discover creative and daring ways to encourage thriving communities.

May they continue to witness to the values of generosity and collaboration for the benefit of all.

May their struggles be occasions of growth and transformation offering hope to our suffering world.

Loving God, may all their efforts bring them peace and joy as they celebrate the wonder and mystery of our common humanity. We ask this in Your name.—AMEN.
