LUNCH (Sext)



God of the boundless ocean
and the southern stars,
you have set the saints and martyrs of the Pacific
to light the way for the churches of this region;
in our turn make us true and trustworthy beacons,
pointing to our way, our truth, our life,
Jesus Christ our Saviour.


Our Father,
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.
