Today the family of Holy Cross celebrates the feast day of our founder, Blessed Basil Anthony Moreau. Father Moreau challenges all of us wear the garment of grace so that the good works we do come from the bottom of our hearts.
Lord Jesus, source of all that is good,
you inspired Blessed Basil Moreau
to found the religious family of Holy Cross
to continue your mission among the people of God.
May he be for us a model of the apostolic life,
an example of fidelity
and an inspiration as we strive to follow you.
May the Church be moved to proclaim his saintliness
for the good of all people.
Lord Jesus, you said, "Ask and you shall receive."
I dare to come to you to ask
that you hear my prayer.
It is through the intercession
of Blessed Basil Moreau
that I ask ....
May I learn to imitate his holiness and service
and look to him confidently in times of need.
