"Prayers and Intercessions
We worship Christ the Lord: he is our Head and we are his body. In triumph we cry:
- Lord, may your kingdom come.
Our Saviour, make your Church more and more a sacrament of human unity:
and an ever more effective road to salvation.
Stand next to the college of Bishops, and our Pope,
and give them the gifts of unity, love, and peace.
May Christians be more closely united with you as their Head;
may the way they live proclaim your kingdom.
In your kindness, give peace to the world:
make peace and security flower everywhere.
Give the deceased a glorious resurrection at the end of time,
and allow us to share their blessedness."
