Mary MacKillop Prayer

Saint Mary of the Cross

Ever generous God,

You inspired Saint Mary MacKillop,
To live her life, faithful to the Gospel of Jesus Christ,
and constant in bringing hope and encouragement,
to those who were disheartened, lonely or needy.

With confidence in your generous providence,
and through the intercession of Saint Mary MacKillop,
We ask that you grant our request...

We ask that our faith and hope be fired afresh by the Holy Spirit,
so that we too, like Mary MacKillop, may live with courage, trust and openness.

Ever generous God hear our prayer.
We ask this through Jesus Christ.
