Jesus, a free man, a man inhabited by the Spirit,
your actions are a sign of the Kingdom to come.
In you the finger of God touches the dusty ground
to bring forth a new man in the likeness of the Father.
Your actions are a sign of the Hope to come,
because you descend to the lowest depths, where despair obscures the horizon
and holds people captive.
Jesus, you want to need us on the world’s human construction sites,
to be relays of your Hope, peacemakers
who work alongside the abandoned.
May your Breath lift us up and inspire us to do as you have done?
Jesus, our Saviour.
