Year of Prayer: Week 41

Prayer to St. Philippine from Soboba Indian Reservation
O holy Woman, who prays always,         we honor you.
    You are like Eagle, soaring high to Creator
    Your prayer is like sweet-smelling smoke of sage and cedar
    Your presence with us is acorn meal,
feeding our spirits and drawing us to Grandfather

O holy woman, who prays always,         we thank you.
    You brought your Society to us long years ago
    Your sisters are with us even now, in your name
    Your love and prayer help us walk the Red Road

O holy woman, who prays always,        we ask your blessing.
    Bless us, your Indian children, and stay with us always
    Bless our land, Mother Earth, given by Creator 
    Bless all people who walk on Mother Earth. May we live together in peace.

Amen, Aho!
