Golden Jubilee Prayer

O Lord, our God, you have planted the seed of Christian faith in our island and have granted our particular Church of Agaña to celebrate The golden jubilee as a diocese. We thank you as we profess our faith and belief as one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. Let this be a year of joy. We remember with gratitude. The countless blessings that you bestowed on our Church: Of urgency to activate and cultivate the values and forces of goodness, justice, love, peace, and reconciliation. In wounds of sin and division, May there be unity and wholeness. Let this be a year of mercy And compassion. In facing the years ahead with hope, teach us that in abundance and luxury, may there be simple lifestyle and sharing.  In poverty and misery, May there be dignified living. In selfish ambition, may there be humble service.  Strengthen us, for we are called to a witness of mercy. Guide us always to respect life from conception to natural death,  So that, together with all people Of good will, we may build The civilization of truth and love. May the Holy Family of Nazareth, Inspire us and make us more Steadfast to support marriage and family life. We ask you to safeguard marriage and that our families will be Strengthened in love and protected from all the forces of evil. Through the maternal intercession of Santa Marian Kamalen, And through the venerable prayers of Blessed Diego Luis de San Vitores, San Pedro Calungsod  and their companion martyrs,  Help us to be more committed as a people to a new evangelization. Let this Jubilee be a year of special grace for us and for the generations to come. Amen
