Loving God, you have tested us and found us wanting for more; yet, today, we come to you and ask your pardon in our lives so that we may be worthy of the graces you are waiting to share with us. May you light a fire of compassion and spirit within that allows us to see your face even among the crowds of unbelievers. May we turn from sin and temptation and find your love. We thank you Lord for every opportunity to share these graces with others. We ask all this in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
