In The Image Created

Lord, how often have we forgotten

that we were created in

your beautiful image and likeness?

Lord, how often have we forgotten

to take care of the beauty of creation?

Lord, please help us to recover the lost beauty

of the world we’ve neglected and abused.

We sleep as dark smoke suffocates the air.

We sleep as poisoned garbage clogs

the interlocking arteries of life.

Even worse, we sleep and do nothing

as our soul struggles amidst the ugliness we’ve created.

Send us the Spirit of your Imagination that we may

Paint our Lives with Colors worthy of your Name.

Send us the Spirit of Creativity that we may Sing

our Lives with Musical Notes Worthy of Being

Created in your Image and Likeness.

Lord, grant us the grace create beauty in your name.
