Almighty God, which hast knit together thine elect in one communion and fellowship in the mystical body of thy Son Christ our Lord:
Grant us grace so to follow thy holy saints in all godly and virtuous living,
that we may come to those unspeakable joys which thou hast prepared for them that unfeignedly love thee,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
