Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
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.
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
