Australian Catholic Youth Festival Prayer

Loving God,
You call us to embrace the joy born of your Son Jesus,
May it well up in our hearts, and be lived through acts of mercy.

Help us resolve to trade in comfort, aspire to greatness,
And follow the path of the Cross as a courageous generation.
Inspire us to build upon the culture, tradition and beauty of the Church;
Nourish us as we dare to blaze trails that open new horizons.

Send us forth to be instruments of change and hope
In this great land of the Holy Spirit.
Like Mary, may we discern your call with faith and love:
Responding with great joy in our hearts.

In union with Jesus, our Saviour and friend,
We pray to be filled with your Holy Spirit
That we may be your witnesses
Through the Australian Catholic Youth Festival.


St Mary of the Cross MacKillop, Pray for us.
Our Lady of the Southern Cross, Pray for us.
