Just God, your faithful love fills the earth. In hope we pray: Give us life, O God. 

Advance your Church’s efforts to redress the sexual abuse crisis. 

     Give us life, O God.  

Transform the hearts of those who are tempted to harm themselves or others.  

     Give us life, O God. 

Save those who are fleeing from any kind of danger. 

     Give us life, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May God bless us with understanding of the riches hidden in Christ and help us to pursue their effects, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
