Bishop Arpondratana

You have been given bishop Francis Xavier Vira Arpondratana.
He is bishop of Chiang Mai (Thailand).

 

Lord Jesus Christ, You have called bishops to be followers of the apostles and shepherds after Your own heart.
Come Holy Spirit and bless Bishop Arpondratana whom I accompany in prayer throughout the Youth Synod.
May he grow daily in love of You and Your Word, so that he might recognize Your will for our times and proclaim your gospel with wisdom and courage.
Give him a heart that is open, especially to the young people who are entrusted to his care.
Amen.
