show us how to be merciful,
show us how to be compassionate to others,
show us how to love everyone as you love us,
show us how to be your radiance in this world.
breath into our very beings,
give us strength to walk in the desert with Christ,
make us true disciples,
move us to embody Christ in this world.
pray for the Church,
pray for abuse victims,
pray for the clergy,
pray for all sinners in this world.
Saint Albert, pray for us.

We ask all of this in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
