Praying It: Follow Christ

Jesus: Let us be yours, Lord! Pervade us, live in us; gather scattered humanity in your body, so that in you everything may be subordinated to God and you can then hand over the universe to the Father, in order that “God may be all in all” – Pope Benedict XVI, Jesus of Nazareth
