God of faithfulness and integrity,
You strengthened your servant Thomas More
by your gifts of love and loyalty;
grant us also in our dealings
to be honest and faithful
and in all things to be true to your commands;
through Jesus Christ our Saviour.
forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Saviour, who hung on the cross,
declaring God’s love to us,
you are forgiveness.
Beside you hung a thief,
beneath you waited Mary the forgiven,
and all around watched those many people
to whom you give new life and hope.
To us you give new life and hope.
Forgiven sinners become your body and your Church;
may the reconciliation we share
bring your gospel to all the world.
