Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord.
Lord, our God,
help us to walk with You
on the pathway of the beatitudes
and to live out Your mission
in today’s world.
Bind us to all men and women
of our time so that together
we may bring the Good News
to the ends of the earth.
Open our hearts and our Christian communities
to the needy, the afflicted, the oppressed.
May we radiate the Living Christ
and transform our lives
in the hope of the Resurrection.
This prayer we make to You
who are the living God
now and forever.
“From humility of the heart proceed serenity of mind,
gentleness of conduct, interior peace, and every good.”
St. Paul of the Cross
