Celebrating Mercy Day, 24th September 2016
He Inoi: Prayer
God of small things
E te Atua o nga mea iti, e whakanui ana:
Great God of small things, we praise you
as another Mercy Day approaches.
We give thanks for the witness of
Catherine McAuley’s extraordinary life:
for her deep conviction that, by your grace, she could make a difference that counted.
We praise you for the grace that abounded as she began to call others to share in her work, for the vision of mercy which inspired her, and for her belief that every encounter could be a turning-point of hope and new life.
Gift us today with that same profound faith that we too may be channels of your tender love.
