THE AFFIRMATION OF LIFE.
Holy and beloved Father, your Son Jesus taught us
that there is great joy in heaven when someone who was lost, It is found,
when someone who had been excluded, rejected or discarded is welcomed back into our us,
that it becomes bigger and bigger.
We beg you to grant to all the disciples of Jesus and to all people of good will
the grace to fulfill your will in the world.
Bless every gesture of welcome and assistance that places again who is in exile
in the we of the community and of the Church, so that our land can be,
just as you created it, the common home of all brothers and sisters. Amen.
