reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen

Way for Daily Praying by Fr George Guiver CR, Superior
Almighty God, who
through your only begotten Son Jesus Christ overcame death and opened to
us the gate of everlasting life: we humbly beseech you that, as by your
special grace going before us you put into our minds good desires, so by
your continued help we may bring them to good effect, through Jesus Christ
our Lord who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now
and for ever. Amen.
the Community of the Resurrection
and everlasting God, who formed your Church to be of one heart and one
soul in the power of the Resurrection and the fellowship of the Holy
Spirit: renew her evermore in her first love and grant such a measure
thereof to the brethren of the Resurrection, that their life may be
ir way directed and their work made fruitful, to the good of your Church
and the glory of your holy name, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
the College of the Resurrection
God and Father of us all, you send labourers into your vineyard: set on
fire many hearts with a sense of their vocation and with an eager response
to your call. To those whom you have gathered at the College of the
Resurrection give grace to prepare in all earnestness and zeal, that with
entire concentration of heart and life they may labour hereafter in your
holy Church, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
For the Society of
Lord Jesus Christ, you call Christians to
follow you with discipline in the path of the Gospel; we pray you to bless
the Society of the Resurrection; may its members follow you gladly, live
their commitments faithfully and witness to you truthfully. May your
worship be the Society’s life and its fruit be public witness to the
Kingdom, within the mission of the Church to bring all people to life
abundant in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Companion Judith Napper
Jesus Christ, dweller of my soul hear me when I cry unto
my eternal spring of life flow free from deep within me and by Thy Holy
Grace may by inner pools of water forever be replenished.
they be so crystal clear and sparkling that I see Thy reflection from
within their depths.
my silver streams of happiness overflow, cascading through life itself and
then, dear Lord, when I kneel before you, let the waters of life in
rivulets of pure passion and indescribable joy run from my body, to fall
in pools of love at Your feet.
O take me sweet Lord, I yield totally and so offer You myself, here
and now for all eternity.
