Oremus - Gracious and loving God, your presence among us invites courage and fidelity in adversity. Suffering can cause feelings of anger and pain as well as a heart that may question your goodness. Take our lives and transform our hearts to trust in your love and your presence within us. Like St Thérèse may we obtain the grace of abandonment to your providential love. We make our prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen.
