We thank you for this day
and seek to live it for your greater glory
as companions of your Son, Jesus.
Help us to see you in all things
and to recognize our own spiritual thirst
and that of our world.
In the spirit of Marie Madeleine
may we be guided by her companions
poverty, humility, obedience, and gentleness.
Send forth your spirit
on the Faithful Companions of Jesus
and their Companions in Mission
throughout the world and draw us
all together in the spirit of your love.
