out of your great love for this world
you reconciled earth to heaven through your only Son.
By the darkness of our sins
we are often turned aside from brotherly love.
Let your light shine in our souls
and fill us with your own sweetness
and embrace our friends in you
and our enemies for your sake
in a bond of mutual affection.
