 Thought for the week

God is not a law to be obeyed, but a joyous energy within which to generatively spend ourselves.  Fr. Ronald Rolheiser



O God,

Who created all people in Your Holy Image,

Who loves the stranger,

Who cares for the downtrodden,

 Walk with those who face discrimination,

 protect them from harm help them see Christ in our community.

Guide those who fan the fires of discrimination to open their eyes

 to the beauty of all your creation and respect the human dignity of all people.

Open our hearts to those who face hatred and injustice

because of their race, their background, their ethnicity

that we might better help them belong.

Through Christ Our Lord, Amen
