You came to serve, not to be served,
form within us Your generous spirit.
Fill us with Your love,
that we may love the Father
as You love Him.
Fill us with Your compassion,
that we may see our brothers and sisters
as You see them.
Fill us with Your courage,
that we may give our lives in service
to the Church as You gave Your life for us.
Fill us with that Spirit which will make us
preachers of Your Word,
friends of the poor
and the voice of the forgotten.
Transform us through Your Holy Spirit
so that we may transform the world
into Your Kingdom of justice and faith.
