in your great love
you called Willibrord to be an apostle to the Netherlands;
give to your faithful people today
a will to follow your leading,
a heart open to strangers,
and a thirst to bring others to know you;
through Jesus Christ our Saviour.
your kingdom come
on earth as in heaven.
Ruler of the everlasting kingdom,
prince of peace, champion of the despised:
you are the king;
you make the cross your throne;
you wear a crown of thorns;
you call your subjects friends.
Help us to take up our cross,
to hunger and thirst for all that is good;
then will your kingdom come on earth as in heaven.
May Christ the King give us his blessing of peace.
Let us bless the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
