Father, give us strength every day to believe that life is stronger than evil.
That there is a way out and light beyond every dead end, every night.
That love already delivers us from death.
Give us the gift of listening to the source of true happiness, to the disconcerting
and inexhaustible calls of life, of what rises from the immense inner spaces
within us.
Give us the ability to recognise the new that is happening,
to marvel at it, to help it grow,
with a passion for love and hope that never lets us rest.
Give us the ability to move forward into the open sea, clear-sighted,
agreeing not to restrict the gift we have made of ourselves
so that your Kingdom may come.
Give us faith in what we do together,
by welcoming others’ differences,
becoming freer of ourselves every day.
