Prayer for the Year of Faith


Loving God, send your Spirit to open our hearts to Jesus.

In this Year of Faith, guide us to a deeper conversion.

Help us to rediscover the beauty of our faith,

profess the truth of our faith,

and renew the heart of our faith.

Grant us the courage to live as authentic witnesses to your love.

May the sharing of faith transform our homes, neighborhoods, parishes, and nations.

Mary, faithful Mother of God, intercede for us in this blessed Year of Faith.

We make this prayer

through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you

and the Holy Spirit,

One God, forever and ever. Amen.
