We are all called to be holy by living our lives with love and by bearing witness in everything we do, wherever we find ourselves. Are you called to the consecrated life? Be holy by living out your commitment with joy. Are you married? Be holy by loving and caring for your husband or wife, as Christ does for the Church. Do you work for a living? Be holy by labouring with integrity and skill in the service of your brothers and sisters. Are you a parent or grandparent? Be holy by patiently teaching the little ones how to follow Jesus. Are you in a position of authority? Be holy by working for the common good and renouncing personal gain. (Gaudete et exsultate 14)
We pray with Brother Gabriel
God our Father,
you made Brother Gabriel Taborin
feel an intense compassion for humanity’s shortcomings,
and of the culture of its time,
especially in children and young people,
and through your Spirit,
you gave him an educational charism to build man up,
in his social, religious and social dimension,
according to the Gospel;
give us the strength to continue his action today,
with the help of Mary and Joseph, educators of Jesus, your Son,
who at Nazareth grew in age, wisdom and grace.
We ask you, Father,
for the Beatification of Venerable Brother Gabriel Taborin,
and for your intercession, the graces we ask for (……).
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
