CSSJ Federation Event Prayers

God of all inclusive love,
open our hearts to the cry for healing
that is welling up from the neighborhood of the universe.

Enflame our zeal to be a healing presence
in our broken world.

Open our eyes to recognize your face
in all expressions of our diversity
and to celebrate the stories of your active,
inclusive love in our lives and ministries.

Now is a time for healing…
Now is a time for hope.
Now is the time for recognizing and reverencing
the dear neighbor in every person and in all creation.

Expand our hearts,
deepen our relationships
and strengthen our zeal that together,
as the Congregation of the Great Love of God,
we may live and work with the passion of Christ Jesus
“that all may be one!”
