by the outpouring of your Grace
make the Year of Faith a time of renewed commitment for us,
a time for us to turn back to you with loving hearts
a time to embrace once again the faith handed on to us by the Apostles
and taught by your one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
May this Year of Faith renew us in the mission, which your Son Jesus,
handed on to us to proclaim the Gospel Message
and so lead others to you.
May this year be a time that strengthens our relationship with you,
deepens our friendship with Your Son Jesus Christ
and fills us with the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
May we grow strong in faith, increase in hope
and live your Holy Gospel with love.
We ask all this through Christ our Lord.
