Lord Jesus,

You were sent by the Father

to gather together those who are scattered.

You came among us, doing good and bringing healing,

announcing the Word of salvation

and giving the Bread which lasts forever.

Be our companion on life’s pilgrim way.

May your Holy Spirit inflame our hearts,

enliven our hope and open our minds,

so that together with our sisters and brothers in faith

we may recognise you in the Scriptures

and in the breaking of bread.

May your Holy Spirit transform us into one body

and lead us to walk humbly on the earth,

in justice and love, as witnesses of your resurrection.

In communion with Mary,

whom you gave to us as our Mother at the foot of the cross,

through you may all praise, honour and blessing be to the Father

in the Holy Spirit and in the Church,

now and forever. Amen
