Embrace Us with Your Tenderness

Columban Daily Prayer
July 10, 2023

All-powerful God, You are present in the whole universe  
and in the smallest of Your creatures.  
You embrace with Your tenderness all that exists.  
Pour out upon us the power of Your love,  
that we may protect life and beauty.  
Fill us with peace, that we may live  
as brothers and sisters, harming no one. 
O God of the poor, help us to rescue  
the abandoned and forgotten of this earth,  
so precious in your eyes. 

— Pope Francis
