Merciful Father, who forgive all who hope in your mercy, grant us to love as you love, that we may approach on this earth the heavenly perfection for which you prepare us. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
