Brother Jesus, I know that we share the same loving Father. And that you invite me to follow in your footsteps of service. Give me the courage to follow you all the way into a shared passion, a shared suffering, a shared resurrection and into a shared new life. Grant me the strong back and untiring shoulders to take that first step with you and your cross and I know that the end of the journey will be glory. Amen.
