O Sovereign and Almighty Lord,
bless all Thy people and all Thy flock.
Thy love unto us,
Thy servants the sheep of Thy fold,
that we may be united in the bond of peace and love,
one body and one spirit,
in one hope of our calling,
in Thy Divine and boundless love;
for the sake of Jesus Christ,
the great Shepherd of the sheep.
-from the Liturgy of Saint Mark
