God our Father,
Be with us on our pilgrim journey of faith.
Give us the grace and courage to step forward
in faith and hope on the road ahead.
Open our eyes to see your face in all those we encounter.
Open our ears to hear your voice in those who are often ignored.
Open our hearts that we might be faithful disciples of mercy and truth.
Bless those who travel on mission from the United States of America
to Krakow in Poland, Land of Divine Mercy,
to join the universal Church for World Youth Day.
Bless, too, those who celebrate stateside, united in faith and joy.
Like the disciples who journeyed up the mountain
to witness the Transfiguration,
May this experience be an encounter
that strengthens us for our work in the world.
Saint James the Apostle,
patron of pilgrim travelers,
pray for us.
Saint John Paul II,
son of Poland and patron of World Youth Day,
pray for us.
