Prayer

God our Father,
all of your children are called, in their diversity
to help build a better world.
Not only through politics and the economy,
but also in moments of encounter and fun.
An example of this communion is created and shared at major sporting events,
a sign that it is possible to build peace.
I also pray that I may live the Gospel, giving witness to faith, honesty, and love of neighbor.

Our Father; Hail Mary; Glory be…

Resolutions for this month:

  • I will use sports and entertainment as an opportunity for a healthy coexistence and respect for 
    each other.
  • I will try to change my sinful attitudes to correspond with my faith.
  • I dedicate this month to special attention to honesty with others, with institutions, with my 
    country and its laws, etc.
