    Dear Lord,
    I may not see the sun and moon lose their light.
    I may not witness rivers turn red, or stars fall from the sky.
    Yet there are times when my world becomes unhinged
    and the foundations of what I believe crack and dissolve.
    Give me the grace to believe that Your power is at work
    in the turmoil of my life.
    Lead me to remember that Your power is greater than all evil,
    and though the world may rock and sometimes break,
    it will in time be transformed by Your Love.

    At the center of the universe is a
    loving heart that continues to beat
    and that wants the best for every person.

    Anything we can do to help foster
    the intellect and spirit and emotional growth
    of our fellow human beings, that is our job.

    Those of us who have this particular vision
    must continue against all odds.

    Life is for service.

    How wonderful, O Lord, are the works of your hands!
    The heavens declare Your glory,
    the arch of the sky displays Your handiwork
    In Your love You have given us the power
    to behold the beauty of Your world
    robed in all its splendor.
    The sun and the stars, the valleys and the hills,
    the rivers and the lakes all disclose Your presence.
    The roaring breakers of the sea tell of Your awesome might,
    the beast of the field and the birds of the air
    bespeak Your wondrous will.
    In Your goodness You have made us able to hear
    the music of the world.
    The voices of the loved ones
    reveal to us that You are in our midst.
    A divine voice sings through all creation.
