your servant Sergius
was filled with an intense love for you
that made him a shining light
among your people in Russia;
by the same Spirit that empowered him,
strengthen our faith,
and set our hearts on fire
to live as true disciples
of Jesus Christ our Lord.
your kingdom come
on earth as in heaven.
grant us the serenity
to accept the things we cannot change,
the courage to change the things we can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
