All holy men and women,

Response: Lord, save your people

Lord, be merciful,
From all evil,
From every sin,
From everlasting death,
By your coming as man,
By your death and rising to new life,
By your gift of the Holy Spirit,

Response: Lord, hear our prayer

Be merciful to us sinners,
Guide and protect your holy Church,
Keep the pope and all the clergy in faithful service to your Church,
Bring all peoples together in trust and peace,
Strengthen us in your service,
Jesus, Son of the living God,

Christ, hear us Christ, hear us

Lord Jesus, hear our prayer Lord Jesus, hear our prayer

Let us pray:

God of our ancestors who set their hearts on You, of those who fell asleep in peace, and of those who won the martyrs violent crown: we are surrounded by these witnesses as by clouds of fragrant incense. In this age we would be counted in this communion of all the saints; keep us always in their good and blessed company. In their midst we make every prayer through Christ who is our Lord for ever and ever.
