look upon us your children
whom You have established and anointed
in Christ your Son.
As we enter our second century
as a community of faith,
we desire to be more and more
conformed to Christ.
Help us to find
our identity and mission in:
Jesus - the Priest who sanctifies
Jesus - the Prophet who teaches the ways of God
Jesus - the King who shepherds and lays down his life for his sheep.
Send your Holy Spirit upon us
so that confident of Christ's love
and our union with Him,
we may be true missionary disciples,
His light in the world today.
We ask this, through Christ, Our Lord,
Mary, mother of Jesus
and His first and greatest disciple,
pray for us.
