+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Said in unison:

Eternal Judge, cleanse our hearts of any ill will we may hold against neighbors.  When they do not think as we do, we often label them unenlightened.  If they behave differently, we pin labels on them.  We choose as our guests those we deem worthy of places of honor within our households.  Yet through Christ you opened heaven to all without regard to their status in society.  Forgive our inability to do the same, and save us from all pride and prejudice in our dealings with your children.
