Eternal Father, we place before thee the project of forming Personal Ordinariates for Anglicans seeking full communion with the Catholic Church. We thank thee for this initiative of Pope Benedict XVI, and we ask that, through the Holy Spirit, the Ordinariates may become:

*families of charity, peace, and the service of the poor,

*centers for Christian unity and reconciliation,

*communities that welcome and evangelize,

*teaching the Faith in all its fullness,

*celebrating the liturgy and sacraments with prayerful reverence,

*and maintaining a distinctive patrimony of Christian faith and culture.

Drawing on that heritage we pray:

Go before us, O Lord, in all our doings with thy most gracious favor, and further us with thy continual help; that in all our works, begun, continued, and ended in thee, we may glorify thy holy Name, and finally, by thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
