O God the Father of all, you ask every one of us to spread

love where the poor are humiliated,

joy where the church is brought low,

and reconciliation where people are divided:

father against son

mother against daughter

husband against wife

believers against those who cannot believe

Christians against their unloved fellow Christians.

You open this way for us,

so that the wounded body of Jesus Christ, your church,

may be a leaven of communion for the poor of the earth

and in the whole human family.  Amen.
