Conference prayers ascending
This week is the St. Michael's Youth Conference--Southwest at in Granbury, TX. I have served on the faculty, but I'm on sabbatical this time around. So I'll be keeping a vigil of prayer for those at the conference, and I invite you to join me.
It is a wonderful immersion experience in the Catholic faith. I recommend it for all youth (ages 12-19). We are blessed with an excellent director, faculty, and staff.
Here is the conference prayer:
O EVERLASTING God, who hast ordained and constituted the services of Angels and men in a wonderful order: Mercifully grant that, as thy holy Angels always do thee service in heaven, so, by thy appointment, they may succour and defend us on earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Have a listen to the conference hymn, "Christ, the fair glory of the holy angels":
