The Holy and Great Prophet Elijah

ELIJAH THE HOPE OF THE FUTURE – ELIJAH THE BELOVED OF GOD – At the end of his mission on earth, he was taken by God into heaven in a fiery chariot, a sign for the hope of every one of us for life in God.

O Lord, grant us the grace you sent to your great-prophet Elijah and fill us with faith in your Gospel, with hope for your life and with love for you and all your people whom you have brought forth into life, that with him, we may lifted up with him and see your glory.
