Lord, You sent Your Son into the world
so that we might have life.
You, with Your Son, have sent us Your Spirit,
inviting us to cry out with joy and trust, “Abba, Father!”
Though our baptism, You publicly and formally
welcome us to share Your life, to be Your children,
Your adopted daughters and sons.
By Loving, we live in Jesus, Your Son,
and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.
You embrace us so that we might
be entirely confident in Your love.
- A Columban Missionary
