Twenty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time
Lord, the word you preach is difficult because of our own weakness, our fallen nature, our selfishness, and pride. May our resolve never falter, O Lord, in our pursuit of you, and may our desire for salvation never be relenting. Inspire a zeal in us Lord, a zeal for you and life everlasting. Amen.
