A #heartbeatprayer from the Diocese of Toronto

Our heartfelt prayer for the Church is

its continuance through the time we find ourselves in. The Church’s longevity is a manifestation of its greatness and truth, like a great piece of art and a thousand year old grove of olive trees. We pray for the Church

to be strong
for people to stay involved
to invite others in
to invite others back

for the Church to be faithful — in its witness and mission

for the Church to be faithful to love as a community, so that the world will see that we do love each other

to see ourselves together with other Christians, finding strength in cooperation

a Church which is inclusive and welcoming
and praying in gratitude for divine grace, virtue and truth
