Gracious God,

You sent us Your Spirit

to help us

live the Gospel

according to the gifts

we have been given.


Show us how to be

good stewards of

your grace and

passionate followers

of Christ, Your Son.


Grant us the wisdom

to recognize that

through His gift of the Eucharist

there is one bread,

and we are one body.


Give us the strength

to proclaim His Good News

in word and deed.


And teach us to live,

no longer for ourselves,

but in Jesus Christ

who lives and reigns with You

and the Holy Spirit,

one God forever and ever.
