Opening Prayer

Your great commandment of wholehearted love of You and one another is awesome, Lord God. This is the heart of Your covenant with us. This is the heart of Your Kingdom. You are so wholehearted in Your love for us. We are humbled by Your faithful and unconditional love! Help us to live by this great commandment of love this day. Ruth is a great symbol of your self- sacrificing and faithful love. She reminds us that You are Emmanuel- “God with us!” Help us to follow the example of this great woman of faith. Fire us with passion for You, Lord God. Give us the Spirit of Jesus. Mary, be Queen of our hearts and lead us to Jesus and the fullness of God’s reign.
