Please join us in praying:
O God, who in each pilgrim Church throughout the world
make visible the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church,
that your faithful may be so united to their shepherd
and gathered together in the Holy Spirit
through the Gospel and the Eucharist,
as to worthily embody the universality of your people
and become a sign and instrument in the world of the presence of Christ.
Who lives and reigns for ever and ever.
