O Sovereign and Almighty Lord, bless all Your people and all Your flock. Give peace, Your help, Your love to us, Your servants the sheep of Your fold, that we may be united in the bond of peace and love, one body and one spirit, in one hope of our calling, in Your Divine and boundless love; for the sake of Jesus Christ, the great Shepherd of the sheep. Amen.
