Road to Emmaus

Lord Jesus Christ, you promise that you will accompany us on our journey of life. You are the Resurrection and the life.  At times we fail to see you because the circumstances of life are hard. Our church is dealing with challenges and we need you. 
As the disciple’s hearts were enflamed on the road to Emmaus, we ask that you guide our efforts and enflame our hearts with your Holy Spirit. Help us to be bold in renewing our commitment to your mission on earth. Help the Diocese of Buffalo and our parish to recognize you, the Risen Lord in the Breaking of the Bread. May our renewal efforts change our attitude and hearts to embrace the future in love so we can proclaim the Gospel of Joy.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.
