We Augustinians join in celebration of the gifts, charism and rich tradition of Religious Brothers in our Province, our Order and our Church on this 2nd annual Religious Brothers Day.
God of mercy and compassion,
thank you for the extraordinary life, witness, and ministry
of Religious Brothers in our Church.
In your wisdom, you have called these ordinary men
to generously serve, pray,
and share your healing love with others.
As we prepare for our annual Religious Brothers Day,
deepen our appreciation for the vocation
of Religious Brothers, their congregational charisms,
and their commitment to vowed community life.
Strenghthened by our baptismal call to holiness,
inspire us to invite men
to consider religious life as a Religious Brother.
Grant all Religious Brothers the grace and perseverance
they need to proclaim your Holy Word
for the life of our Church and our world.
