A Closing Prayer    


Faithful God, you have appointed us your witnesses, to be the light that shines in the world. Let us not hide the bright hope you have given us, but tell everyone our love, revealed in Jesus Christ the Lord., who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
