11th Ordinary Province Chapter Prayer

Prayer for the Success of the
11th Ordinary Provincial Chapter
of the Augustinian Province of Santo Niño de Cebu-Philippines

Leader: Our help is in the name of the Lord.
All: Who made heaven and earth.

Psalm 133
The Joy of Fraternal Love

Antiphon: See how good it is, how pleasant when brothers dwell in unity!

How good and how pleasant it is,
when brothers live in unity!

It is like precious oil upon the head
running down upon the beard,
running down upon Aaron’s beard,
upon the collar of his robes.

It is like the dew of Hermon
which falls on the heights of Zion.
For there the Lord gives his blessing,
life for ever.

Glory to the Father…

Antiphon: See how good it is, how pleasant when brothers dwell in unity!

For Lauds:

Lord Jesus, you promised to be present among any two or three who come together in your name
– may your presence in our community be such that everything that we do will be done in your name and serve the good of the Province.

For Vespers:

Lord God, you enliven your Church with the fire of your Spirit and you guide her by his light
– grant that all the members of the Province be enkindled with the love of the same Spirit, and thus all will be done according to your will.

After a brief silence, the leader says:

Let us pray.

Bless this family of yours, Lord, and preserve us in true harmony and fraternal love, while we put our confidence in the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Saint Joseph and our Holy Father Augustine. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

During the Provincial Chapter:

Lord God, in your mercy, you have called us to oneness of mind and heart. Grant that all the proceedings of our provincial chapter may conform to your holy will, and that all these things may bring an increase in our unity and love and so render us more open to you and to our service to your Church. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
