Optional Memorial of St. Rose of Lima, Virgin
Lord God, your mercy is offered to all, no matter how far they may stray from your will. Yet not all who are offered this incredible gift will reach out for it, even when it is within their reach. May all who have strayed return to you, O Lord, your hand forever outstretched to your fallen creation. Amen.
Psalms 51:12-13, 14-15, 18-19
