You call all your children to live a life of holiness,
and you sent Jesus among us as the perfect Steward,
to lead us on our journey of faith.
Grant that we, as Disciples of your Son,
may acknowledge you as the source of all our gifts,
in the love we show the least of your people,
the care with which we protect your created beauty,
the generous spirit in which we return
these gifts to you with increase.
We pray that in all we are and all we do,
we strive to imitate your Son
in His life of humble service.
All this we ask in Jesus' name. Amen.
