by the grace of the Holy Spirit
you poured the gift of love
into the hearts of your faithful people.
Give your servants __________, __________,
health of body and soul
that they may love you with all their strength,
and moved by love, do what pleases you;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

you love unity
and dwell in the hearts of those who are peaceful.
Give all your faithful people
true peace and mutual love;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

out of your great love for this world
you reconciled earth to heaven through your only Son.
By the darkness of our sins
we are often turned aside from brotherly love.
Let your light shine in our souls
and fill us with your own sweetness
and embrace our friends in you
and our enemies for your sake
in a bond of mutual affection.
