God of our ancestors, we remember your mighty deeds. With longing we pray: 

God, in your compassion, hear our prayer.  

Deepen the gifts of contemplation and charity in your Church. 

God, in your compassion, hear our prayer. 

Inspire the service and understanding of all who prepare and participate in liturgies of the Triduum. 

God, in your compassion, hear our prayer.  

Strengthen and comfort the sick and all who are undergoing treatment for illness or addiction. 

God, in your compassion, hear our prayer.  

Our Father . . .  

May we prefer nothing to the love of Christ, and may he bring us together to everlasting life. Amen.
