BLESSING AND FINAL PRAYER

12 March 2000

 

Dear brothers and sisters,
may this liturgy which has celebrated the Lordís mercy
and has sought to purify the memory
of the journey made by Christians over the centuries,
awaken in the whole Church and in each of us
renewed fidelity to the perennial message of the Gospel:
never again actions opposed to charity in the service of truth,
never again actions against the communion of the Church,
never again offences against any people,
never again recourse to the logic of violence,
never again acts of discrimination, exclusion, oppression,
contempt for the poor and the defenceless.

And may the Lord by his grace
bring our resolve to fulfilment
and lead us together to eternal life.

Amen.
