Prayer of the Day
Help us, O Lord, to conquer all harshness of judgement with your gentleness; to quench all meanness of spirit with your generosity and to defeat all indifference of compassion with your fervour. Teach us to be courageous in loving, patient in suffering and attentive in prayer; through Christ our Lord. Amen.Clement XI (1649-1721)
Creator God, in our island home you have given us an abundance of beauty. The sea that surrounds us, the hills and the glens, all of this is your gift to us. Help us to be good stewards of all that you have provided.
May we be a gift to the communities in which you have placed us as we witness to the truth that every place and every time is yours. In an age of change, help us to see what we can do to make a difference in your world. In a world where people are fearful, help us to spread your message of hope and never forget that the earth is yours. Amen.
