To Know, Love and Serve – by Maria A. Smith

“To know, love and serve” by Maria A. Smith
In honor of the Marianist bicentennial – recorded during the St. Mary’s University Marianist Heritage Mass at Holy Rosary Parish 1/26/2017

With great thanksgiving
and loving praise
we come to bless
your name O God!
Your goodness is unending
your mercy is profound.
With Mary you have called us
to know, love and serve.

As we look to our past
we remember our mission
and our call:
to know, love and serve
with the passion of Christ,
with hearts ever open to your life.

May we listen with care
as you speak of the yearnings
of your heart.
With Mary we come
to surrender our will;
to serve all who thirst for your love.

Let these jars filled with fears
become empty and purified.
Renew our hearts,
may our “yes” be sincere
as we bring your compassion
to our world.

Send your spirit of hope
to refresh and renew our hearts.
Together as one
we bear witness to Christ
to see peace and justice
once again.
