Father, by the power of the Spirit,
strengthen the Church's commitment
to the new evangelization
and guide our steps
along the pathways of the world,
to proclaim Christ by our lives,
and to direct our earthly pilgrimage
towards the City of heavenly light.
May Christ's followers show forth their love
for the poor and the oppressed;
may they be one with those in need
and abound in works of mercy;
may they be compassionate towards all,
that they themselves may obtain indulgence
and forgiveness from You.
Praise and glory to You, Most Holy Trinity,
You alone are God most high!
