Friday of the 23rd Week in Ordinary Time

Today the church celebrates Friday of the 23rd week of ordinary time. Let us pray. Open our eyes, O Lord, to see You in the faces of those who stumble and fall with us. Correct our own vision to realize how our self-centeredness distorts our perception of the world around us. Illuminate our hearts so that we may bring healing and wholeness, rather than divisiveness and brokenness, to every hurting relationship and difficult situation.
