God of compassion, you thirst for justice;
give to all who follow Christ
the vision of your kingdom
and the gifts of your Spirit
to work for its coming;
through the one who alone satisfies all our thirst,
Jesus Christ our Saviour.
Our Father in heaven,
the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
O divine Master,
grant that we may not so much seek to be consoled,
as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
