U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Mass scripture readings

Come, Jesus, Thy Kingdom Come!

First of all, in our own hearts, where you desire to set us free,
Thy Kingdom Come!
In the healing of pain and suffering, of poverty, of oppression,
Thy Kingdom Come!
In the bursting forth of our care for your planet earth,
Thy Kingdom Come!
In the harmony between nations, and people of every race, of every creed,
Thy Kingdom Come!
In cherished dignity for each person, for family, for Church
Thy Kingdom Come!
We praise you and thank you for your faithfulness to us on our journey of life and mission. Fashion us according to the designs of your heart. Make us and all things your gifts for a new age.
Thy Kingdom Come!

This prayer was written for the Mission Helpers on the occasion of their 100th Anniversary.

Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est
“Where there is charity and love, God is there”
