Example text

MY’ YOUNG PEOPLE Eight nieces and nephews aged twenty-six to twenty-one each growing forth in the world in ways I can see but not know. Inherited feuds in the family keep us from each other’s company: A girl piper who practises hospitality. A cool guy with a passion for Celtic! An artist who likes to go fishing. A young mother of one little boy. A sensitive American student. A gymnast who took her own life. A tall, spare, athletic sportsman. A young soldier, now in Iraq. God, bless and have mercy on them all.

Knit together, every single one. Called into being, every single one. No matter what the headline says. No matter what the state of my purse says. No matter what my postcode says. No matter what my accent says. Every single one. Called into being, called by my name. No matter where I shop. No matter who I sit next to. No matter what the label. No matter. God of the poor. God of the rich. God of the struggling somewhere in between. Rise with us in the morning and dare us to dream. Turn our heads with your vision of justice and joy.

Yvonne Morland, Scotland GOD OF SURPRISES God of surprises, who chose not the mighty but the vulnerable to be the vehicle of your salvation. Give us the courage of Mary to say ‘yes’ to your vision of a world made whole, that we may labour with creation to give birth to justice and new life. Annabel Shilson-Thomas/CAFOD LORD OF THE MORNING Lord of the morning, you come to us in sunshine and in shower. Unobtrusive, you call us into life once again. We long for your love to enfold us, your Spirit to refresh us and renew us, your gentle presence to guide and protect us.
