All Saints : Would That We Were Shaped By This

A prayer for All Saints' Day. Would that we were more shaped by this...

Your love made visible in Jesus Christ
brings home the lost,
restores the sinner
and gives dignity to the despised.
In his face your light shines out,
flooding lives with goodness and truth,
gathering into one in your kingdom
a divided and broken humanity.

from the Extended Preface to the Eucharistic Prayer, All Saints to Advent
Common Worship: Times and Seasons
