The Office of the Chaplain United States House of Representatives

Monsignor Stephen Rossetti

Catholic University of America
Washington, DC

Date of Prayer: 09/14/2012

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Good and gracious God, today more than ever, we are aware that we are small, that we are made of the Earth, and that we are mortal. In our weakness, may You be our shield. In our humility, may You be our strength. In our mortality, may You be our source of eternal life. May people of every party and nation unite together in their human frailty. May they proclaim with one voice and one heart that we are one people united in serving You and in loving our brothers and sisters. Our prayer today is small. Our voice is weak. We trust that You incline Your ear and You will hear this simple prayer. We thank You.
