Opening Prayer

You made us romantics, Lord, like yourself! That is why we grumble and see the incompleteness, emptiness, and the not-yet. Our insecurity causes us to rashly and foolishly judge others. Save us from our darkness, Faithful and Compassionate One! InSpirit us with integrity so that our attitudes, words and works are one. Help us to be faithful to our commitments. Give us the courage to give those we love the benefit of the doubt. Help us not to so easily discard or demean people because of inconvenience. Give us long-term faithfulness in a time of immediate satisfaction and gratification. Help us to be like You in the way we are faithful to each other.
