    Secular Franciscan Prayer for Youth
    Dearest Lord,
    Jesus tells us whoever welcomes little children,
    Welcomes me and we know that no one is ever far
    from your loving care.
    In your kindness watch over our youth.
    Grant them the grace to hear the whispering
    Of the Holy Spirit guiding them
    In thought, word and action.
    May they be called to follow you in the
    Footsteps of St. Francis and St. Clare.
    Help them to see that whatever their path leads them,
    They can trust in your love and mercy.

    Throughout the world, young  Catholic men and women , single or married between the ages of 18 and 30 are able to embrace the spiritual vision of St. Francis of Assisi by forming Franciscan Youth Communities.   Through initial and ongoing formation, the members of these communities deepen their love for God and for others by going from gospel to life and life to gospel.
