♦ Prayer to St. Laurence O’Toole

St. Laurence O’Toole, man of peace,

You were in the middle of family and political

conflict from your earliest days. Give the gift

of peace and hope to all who experience the

trauma of division in families, in communities

and among nations.

 

St. Laurence O’Toole, man of prayer,

you recognized the call to serve the Lord

in a particular way at Glendalough. Give the

gift of perseverance to all who are discerning

their Christian vocation at this time.

 

St. Laurence O’Toole, man of faith,

you had the openness to accept a position of

leadership in your community at an early age.

Bless our young people with a spirit of

generosity  to offer themselves in the service

of the Gospel.

 

St. Laurence O’Toole, man of prayer,

you inspired people by your commitment to

the spiritual life and the recitation of the

Prayer of the Church. Fill us with that desire

to pray in communion with each other

throughout each day.

 

St. Laurence O’Toole, man of faith,

you opened your heart and your doors to

those who were poor. Increase our awareness

of those in need and inspire us to act with

justice and charity at all times.

 

St. Laurence O’Toole, man of prayer,

you were respected for your commitment to

your Church and to your country. Grant us

the grace to live in this world while always

reflecting the eternal values of the kingdom.

 

St. Laurence O’Toole, man of peace,

you gave your last ounce of energy in the

cause of peace. Give us the gift of tirelessness

as we try to live as instruments of Christ’s

peace, love and tolerance.
