Oh God, I thank you for granting and blessing me with another year as your child. Over the failures and sorrows of life, help me to witness your goodness,as I get older and as times get harder.
Thank you for giving me another year to serve the Holy Church, proudly. Show me your grace and light in order for me to work towards your mission, so that everyday day that I am under your ruling, I may please you with good deeds.
Every day is a blessing. Help me realize your humility and love and show me the way to your peace.
