Lord God
As you know, witnessing is not a crusade,
nor is it about proving anything.
Baptised in Christ, renewed in the Spirit,
we speak, we love, we weep, we doubt,
we work, we laugh, we suffer, we hope,
like all men, we live!
But Lord, we beg you to allow us to lead a humble and unostentatious life,
a daily existence that is clearly founded on Christ and his Gospel.
In this way, animated by the Spirit, we will forge ever deeper links
with all humanity and with You, faithful God, for ever and ever.
