Prayer of Archbishop Romero This is what we are about: We plant the seeds that some day will grow. We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise. We lay foundations that will need further development. We provide yeast that produces effects far beyond our capabilities.
I add my breath to your breath that our days may be long on the Earth, that the days of our people may be long, that we shall be as one person, that we may finish our road together.
All the world hopes in you, Loving God, that you will feed us in our hunger. You open wide your hand and we are filled with good things. Psalm 104

Joseph of dreams, guard well the poor.Be a strong bar upon the door.Be a broad window all day longto let in sun and wild bird song.Set a new loaf upon the boardto fill the poor man’s scanty hoard.With strength and patience bless the livesof all poor men and poor men’s wives.Listen to poor men’s children …
Loving God, let the prayers of Cyril of Jerusalem,whose feast is today,lead us to to know your Son betterand to have eternal life in all its fullness. Amen
May there always be work for your hands to do.May your purse always hold a coin or two.May the sun always shine upon your window pane.May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.May the hand of a friend always be near youMay God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you. Irish blessing
