Heavenly Father, You have taught us to love you, our God, by loving each other. Help us to embrace your words and open our hearts as we at St. Matthew become your eyes, your hands and your feet. As your eyes, may we see You in everyone who crosses our path. As your hands, may we reach out to the needs of our neighbors with compassion and service. As your feet, may we take steps that follow Jesus toward the Kingdom. Lord, we love you and we thank you for your forgiveness. Lead us on your way that we may live, love and praise you forever and ever. -Amen.
