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 . . .
save us from the time of trial,
and deliver us from evil.
Help us to Love others as your word states:
Love is patient, love is kind and envies no one,
Love is not boastful, never conceited,
never rude nor selfish;
love is not quick to take offence.
Love keeps no score of wrongs;
love delights in the truth;
there is no limit to its faith,
its hope and its endurance.
Love never gives up.
Help us not to give up.
May Christ the King give us his blessing of peace.
