                                            The Octave of Christian Unity: Day 6

                                              O God,
                                              You are the friend of the human race
                                              and You willed to grant us the gift of tongues
                                              by which You once Divinely instructed Your Apostles
                                              so that they might preach the Gospel.
                                             Through the ministry of Your Holy Spirit,
                                              grant that all people in all places and in all tongues,
                                              may proclaim the glory of Your Son Jesus.
                                              Confound the tongues of false prophets
                                              who have united to construct
                                              the impious tower of Babel
                                              to obscure Your glory and enhance their own.
                                             To You alone belongs all glory,
                                              with Jesus Your Son our Lord
                                              and the Holy Spirit,
                                              for all ages. Amen.
