Prayer for the 2017 Convocation of Catholic Leaders

O Holy Spirit, you who first enkindled in our hearts the joyof the Gospel, renew that same joy in those who attended the Convocation of Catholic Leaders.

Continue to enflame the hearts of our bishops and their diocesan delegations; leaders of national organizations and movements; clergy, religious and laity; all who made this event possible; and Catholic leaders across the United States.

Move us to welcome the word of life in the depths of our hearts and respond to the call of missionary discipleship.

O Holy Spirit, transform our hearts and enable us to enter into the perfect communion that you share with the Father and the Son.*

Mary, Star of the New Evangelization, pray for us. Amen.
