Heavenly Father, you are the Way, Truth and Life. I offer every moment of this day for the peoples of Africa so that, through the commitment of your Church, they will know unity and find hope. Hail Mary.
As this day ends, I contemplate your goodness to me. You gave your life for me, Lord. I am often reluctant in returning this love to you. My heart has a desire to respond, but selfishness and fragility sometimes take over. Keep me close to you and teach me to be patient and to rise up every time I fall. May Mary, your mother, support me. Hail Mary.
