June 5 – Wednesday
Memorial of Saint Boniface, Bishop and Martyr
Gospel Reading: JN 17:11B-19
All that Jesus said and did was to give glory to his Father. Before his death, he prayed for his disciples:
"Holy Father, keep them in your name that they may be one as we are one".
Jesus prayed for the unity of his disciples and for all who would believe in him. Jesus' prayer for his people is that we be united with God the Father in his Son and through his Holy Spirit and be joined together, in unity with all who are members of Christ's body.
Prayer: (all together)
Lord Jesus, let all your people be united in your name. Let us come to worship you as one people. Amen
