A journal dedicated to the life and mission of St. Gaspar del Bufalo, and to a life lived in response to the call and the cry of the Most Precious Blood of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Our on-going mission is to share good news of hope and communion.

Mission Prayer 2004

Please pray for the fruitfulness of the parish missions being prepared for the coming season

Almighty and ever present God,
endless font of life and grace,
nourishing the earth
and bringing mercy
to a fragile and broken world,
you renew with us the everlasting covenant
in the Precious Blood of your Son,
reconciling all who were far off
and bringing near those who were lost and forgotten.

Draw us into your boundless love.
Help us to drink deeply of your truth,
to take up the cup of eternal salvation
and to call on your holy Name.

Teach us to do your will
that all may see and know your peace.

We ask this in the name of Jesus, the Christ,
our crucified and risen Lord
who poured out his blood on the cross
for the life of the world,
who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, One God,
forever and ever. Amen.

Oración Misionera 2004

Dios todopoderoso y siempre presente,
la fuente interminable de la vida y la gracia,
alimentando la tierra
y trayendo la misericordia
a un mundo frágil y quebrantado,
tú renuevas con nosotros la alianza eterna
en la sangre preciosa de tu Hijo,
reconciliando a todos los que se alejan
y acercando a los perdidos y olvidados.

Atráenos a tu amor infinito.
Ayúdanos a beber profundamente tu verdad,
a tomar el cáliz de la salvación eterna
y a invocar en tú santo nombre.

Enséñanos a hacer tu voluntad
para que todos veamos y conozcamos tu paz.

Te pedimos esto en el nombre de Jesucristo,
nuestro crucificado y resucitado Señor
que derramó su sangre en la cruz
por la vida del mundo,
que vive y reina contigo
en la unidad del Espíritu Santo y es Dios
por los siglos de los siglos. Amen.



I composed this prayer to include the four mission themes of Covenant, Reconciliation, Cup and Cross. I will be preaching parish missions in Arizona, Ohio, and Indiana. The prayer will be prayer before and during the mission by the parishioner. You are all invited to pray with us.
