Prayers for the Ordinariates

16 11 2010

Bishop Peter Elliott, Episcopal Delegate in Australia, has published these prayers for the Personal Ordinariates:

Eternal father, we place before you the project of forming the Personal Ordinariates for Anglicans seeking full communion with the Catholic Church.  We thank you for this initiative of Pope Benedict XVI, and we ask that, through the Holy Spirit, the Ordinariates may become:

families of charity, peace and the service of the poor, centres for Christian unity and reconciliation, communities that welcome and evangelize, teaching the Faith in all its fullness, celebrating the liturgy and sacraments with prayerful reverence and maintaining a distinctive patrimony of Christian faith and culture.

Drawing on that heritage we pray:

Go before us, O Lord, in all our doings with thy most gracious favour, and further us with thy continual help; that in all our works, begun, continued and ended in thee, we may glorify thy holy Name, and finally by thy mercy obtain everlasting life; though Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

V/ Our Lady of Walsingham.

R/ Pray for us as we claim your motherly care.

V/ Saint Therese of the Infant Jesus.

R/ Pray for us as we place this work under your patronage.

V/ Blessed John Henry Newman

R/ Pray that Christ’s Heart may speak unto our hearts.

V/ Saints and Martyrs of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland.

R/ Pray for us and accompany us on our pilgrim way.

 

It may be appropriate to add this to your website, blog or publish it for use by the faithful.
