        R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. 
    Let us pray:
      Almighty and eternal God, your mercy flows from the Heart of your Son opened on the cross for us.  In its tides you bring those who have wandered far from your presence back into communion with you, opening up for them a life transformed by your grace.  As you touched the heart of St Genesius with your merciful gaze, so now look upon us and hear our prayers.  Through his intercession, grant us that confidence and trust which only union with Christ can inspire, and as you led your faithful martyr through the gates of death to an eternal life of joy and glory, lead us in the footsteps of Christ as his disciples and apostles in this world, to be his inheritance in the world to come.  We ask this through the same Christ our Lord, Amen.
