your saints are one with you
in the mystical body of Christ;
give us grace to follow them
in all virtue and holiness
until we come to those inexpressible joys
which you have prepared for those
who truly love you;
through Jesus Christ our Lord . . .
forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us
Jesus, you knew rejection and disappointment;
help us if our work seems distasteful'
help us to decide what best to do,
what next to do,
or what to do at all.
Give us courage and cheerfulness to go the second mile,
and all the miles ahead.
May Christ the King give us his blessing of peace.
