To you our God we pray:
That we may become all that we were meant to be,
blessed by a consciousness of your presence and your care,
and in harmony with the earth
and it’s entire living family of creatures.
May we never find ourselves at enmity
with the creation to which we belong; never insensitive to the injuries
done to our generous earth
never insensitive to the injuries we do to one another.
Give us energy for the demands of our work
and the demands of living life in the Spirit.
Strengthen us O Lord with your own spiritual ocean
of compassion and faithfulness.
The Columban Fathers
