Jesus, we, Your followers, live in an in-between world.
We know by Faith of Your victory over sin and death
through Your Life, death and Resurrection.
Yet we see the reality of evil in people
being exploited – in the land, sea and sky
being polluted – in people brought
to despair by poverty.
We continue Your mission of hope
by our own attempts to be fair and caring
in our day-to-day lives; in the struggles
to bring about true peace and justice;
in announcing to others that life has meaning
and is fulfilled in compassion.
By Your example of self-giving,
guide us to true love and life.
Encourage us to use our hearts, minds, and hands,
all together in following Your example of being life giving.
— By a Columban Missionary
