Prayer of St Angela

Gracious God,
Let us remain in harmony,
United together;
All of one heart and one will.
Let us be bound to one another
by the bond of love,
respecting each other,
helping each other,
and bearing with each other in
Jesus Christ.
For if we try to be like this,
without doubt,
you, Lord God,
will be in our midst.
Amen.
