Holy and immortal God,
your servant Ignatius
longed to be one with Christ
and urged that Christ’s body should be one;
grant that, feeding on the bread of God,
we may seek the unity of the Spirit
in the bond of peace;
through Jesus Christ our Redeemer.
your will be done
on earth as in heaven.
Holy and enabling Spirit,
give wings to our morning prayers.
May those we support and cherish with our love
receive your grace to help them in their need.
