R Build us a home, O Lord.
You have called us to encourage one another and to build one another up:
– make us skilled laborers and co-builders on your team of workers. R
You have granted us various talents for the upbuilding of your Temple, your body, the Church in love:
– grant that our talents are not selfishly hidden, but shared with the poor in service to all.
You have gone before us to prepare a home for each among many mansions in your Father’s house:
– allow us the grace to despise seeking the things of this life and to press on with faith to our eternal home.
You have given through your Word, a vision of a great city to come:
– bring all who know they are poor in spirit, homeless, lost, abandoned and broken to dwell with you in glory.
