O Lord, our God,
You called Your people to be Your Church.
As they gather together in Your Name,
may they love, honour, and follow Your Son
to eternal life
in the Kingdom He promised.
Let their worship always be sincere,
and help them to find Your saving Love
in the Church and its Sacraments.
Fill with the Spirit
those whom You call to live
in the midst of the world and its concern.
Help them by their work on earth
to build up Your eternal Kingdom.
May they be effective witnesses
to the Truth
of the Gospel
and make Your Church a living presence
in the midst of the world.
Increase the gifts
You have given Your Church
that Your faithful people may continue to grow
and in imitation of Your Beloved Son.
