Prayer for Healing: Adaptation of Prayer on the Feast of St. Francis by Bridget Mary Meehan, ARCWP

Killarney, Ireland

Christ Sophia,
We give thanks for  our mystical oneness with each other and with all in the cosmic community,
We give thanks for your  abundant blessings in our international Roman Catholic Women Priests Movement. 
We give thanks for our diversity and different approaches.

May we always treat one another as the Beloved of God.
And in the words of this beautiful Prayer on the feast  of St. Francis
we pray with one mind and heart for healing of our communities,  church and world; 
Where there is injury, forgiveness
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, Joy.

May we rejoice that our international movement is painting a new portrait of God as we live Gospel equality now!

O Christ of the Cosmos, 
May we see your face in each other.
May we reflect your compassion and kindness in our thoughts, words and deed.
For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in affirming others that we are affirmed.

It is in forgiving that we are forgiven.
And it is in living in the light that our path is illuminated.
Bridget Mary Meehan, ARCWP,
