Loving God, St. Ursula had the courage and leadership to gather others and unite them in love and discipleship with Jesus the Savior. May we be witnesses of service for others and foster unity in mission. When we encounter resentment and ill will may we meet it with courage and unswerving faith and hope. Together may we honor and serve the Christ for whom St. Ursula died and for whom we live. We ask this in the name of Jesus the Christ. Amen.
