Lord Jesus Christ, Wisdom and Word of God, dwell in our hearts, we pray, by your most Holy Spirit, that out of the abundance of our hearts our mouths may speak your praise. Amen.Christina Rossetti (1830-1894)
God who loves and who calls us to love:
from hardness to divine compassion, transform our hearts;
from heaviness to holy joy, transform our souls;
from prejudice to eternal truth, transform our minds;
from fear to faithful courage, transform us in strength;
that we might love our neighbour, witness to your Son, and grow in your Spirit. Amen.
