Prayer of the Day
Wednesday, May 20, 2020
God of all creation, your goodness and glory shine forth through everything you have made. Everything in your creation is connected, for all share a common origin in your creating hand. Fill us with a spirit of praise, gratitude, wisdom and courage, that we might care for creation and not misuse it, ensure that its goods are shared in justice with all our brothers and sisters, and speak out on its behalf whenever it is threatened. Through the light of faith, help us to see this world, our common home, not as a resource to dominate and exploit, but as a gift to be cherished by all generations. Prompted by your Spirit, we ask this in the name of Jesus, through whom all creation was made. Amen.

From the writings of Blessed Basil Moreau, founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross:
- "When we make resolutions, we should ask Jesus Christ, through Mary and Joseph, for the grace to be faithful to them." (Sermons)
