Welcome to Day 7 of the Saints of Color Novena. Nhan Nguyen, acj, introduces us to Venerable Francis-Xavier Nguyễn Văn Thuận, a man who had great love for the Eucharist and sought to bring the peace of Christ wherever he was, including prison.
Almighty Father, we pray as one Church, through the intercession of these holy people, that we may experience a deeper conversion of heart as we seek to imitate the love of your son, Jesus.
Send your Holy Spirit to inflame our hearts with a desire for sanctity and justice. Through the lives of these virtuous people, inspire us to grow in holiness and work towards greater racial reconciliation in a world that is in need of hope and peace.
In your name we pray, Amen.
