you sent Boniface to Europe
to proclaim your love,
to confront the forces of paganism,
and to yield his life for the gospel;
give us grace gladly to bear the yoke of Christ
and to find our peace in his service;
through Jesus Christ our Saviour.
your will be done
on earth as in heaven.
Creator of the universe, infinite and glorious,
you give us laws to save us from our folly;
give us eyes to see your plan unfolding,
your purpose emerging as the world is made;
give us courage to follow the truth
courage to go wherever you lead;
then we shall know blessings beyond our dreams;
then will your will be done.
