Give, to those who have and can, eyes of mercy and an open heart.
Give everyone bread, shelter and a loving home.
Give health to the sick, patience in pain to those who suffer, comfort to the sad, hope to those who have lost it.
Remove error from minds and weakness from hearts.
It moves sinners to return to themselves and the righteous to higher virtue.
Make us live singing to you and let us go with your name on our lips to contemplate you in glory with your son Jesus Christ, who with the father and the holy spirit God lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen.
