Kairos 2.0 More Jesus, More Ignatius Fr Joe Laramie, SJ Director of Pastoral Ministry Rockhurst High, KC MO
Now thank we all our God, with heart and hands and voices, Who wondrous things has done, in Whom this world rejoices; Who from our mothers’ arms has blessed us on our way With countless gifts of love, and still is ours today.
Oh, may this gracious God through all our life be near us, With ever joyful hearts and blessed peace to cheer us; And keep us in His grace, and guide us in distress; And guard us from all sin til Heaven we posess.
