When injustice looms large,

remind us that small, daily Gospel obediences

reveal the infinite wideness of God’s mercy,

and strengthen all whose lives of daily justice

bring grace into the world;


When justice delays, and nothing seems to change,

remind us that faith and perseverance

manifest God’s unchanging love,

and inspire all whose long term faithfulness

slowly, but inexorably heals the world;


When the call of Your Reign is difficult and daunting

remind us that life is found

in giving ourselves for You and for others,

and sustain all whose constant sacrifices

bring joy and goodness to the world;


O God, though our faith is mustard-seed-small,

we offer it to you,

that we may daily play our little part

in your saving, transforming purposes.
