How good, how delightful it is to live as brothers all together.
A PRAYER FOR EUROPE
God of everlasting love,
grant to the people of Europe and to their leaders
a spirit of zeal for truth and justice, freedom and charity.
Forgive our past sins and renew among us by your grace all that is most humane and generous in our inheritance.
Grant that future generations
may grow up in true communities built on the family,
and in harmony with nature.
Through your help, may our continent contribute powerfully to the good of the whole world, especially the poor;
through your gift of wisdom may Europe become a builder and maintainer of world peace.
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.
Bishops of England and Wales
