Most blessed and glorious Trinity, Three Persons in one God,
teach us to worship and adore that absolute Trinity, that perfect Unity.
And that we may adore you, that our worship may not be a mockery,
make us to know that we are one in Christ,
as the Father is one with the Son, and the Son with the Father.
Prevent us from looking upon our sectarianism as if it were a destiny.
Help us to regard it as a rebellion against you.
Help us to see all distinctions more clearly
in the light of your everlasting love.
Help us to recognize the truth of every effort to express something
of that which passes knowledge.
Help us to feel and confess the feebleness of our own efforts.
So may your holy name embrace us more and more.
So may all creatures in heaven and earth and under the earth at last
glorify you throughout all ages. Amen.
F.D. Maurice, 1805–1872, Anglican theologian and author
May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
