A prayer to Mater Admirabilis, inspired by the new calls from the General Chapter

Mater Admirabilis

 
May your gaze guide us

+ outwards to geographical and existential frontiers,

+ to live radically like Jesus of Nazareth,

+ to listen to the movement of the Heart of God
within us and in the world.

 

We ask

to know how to accompany emerging life;

to defend justice, peace and the integrity of creation;

 to revitalise our union in diversity and
act as body in the world and in the Church;

so we can be nearer, simpler and more human 

and thus show the joyful and compassionate face of God.

 
Amen.
