All powerful and ever living God, you made your bishop Saint Vincent Mary Strambi a devoted shepherd of your flock and a faithful servant of the Church. Strengthen us by his example to love our neighbour and work for justice as members of your Church. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
PRAYER OVER THE GIFTS
Lord, we offer you these gifts on this memorial of Saint Vincent Mary. Grant that we may follow his example by living in the spirit of Christ’s gospel and working to spread its message throughout the world. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
PRAYER AFTER COMMUNION
Lord, we have received our strength with the bread of heaven. May this food of love strengthen our spirit and inspire us to serve you in our neighbour, for you are Lord for ever and ever. Amen.
