O Christ of the dove, grant us the purity of the Spirit. O Christ of the sparrow, grant us the Father's protection. O Christ of the mother-hen, grant us shelter beneath your wing. Amen.

Bonaventure of Bagnoregio (1217-1274)

 

Lord Jesus Christ,
before the creation of the mountains, you were.
When the last second of time passes, you will be.
Help us see the context of our lives within your perspective,
held forever in your everlasting love
and enfolded in your never-ending care,
our first and last, in whom past, present and future are one. Amen.

Arglwydd Iesu Grist,
Cyn creadigaeth y mynyddoedd, roeddet ti.
Pan fydd eiliad olaf amser yn mynd heibio, byddi di.
Cynorthwya ni i weld cyd-destun ein bywydau o fewn dy bersbectif di,
Wedi ein dal yn dy gariad tragwyddol
A'n cofleidio yn dy ofal di-ben-draw,
Ein cyntaf a'n holaf, sy'n uno'r gorffennol, y presennol a'r dyfodol. Amen.

Jennifer Hurd, Synod Cymru Chair
