United Family

doubletrinity.jpg

Lord, how often have we forgotten

the importance of our family

here on earth as it is in heaven?

Lord, how often have we forgotten

that we all belong to your family?

Yes, we belong to a family,

both human and divine.

Together building a community

worthy of you name.

How can we keep

the bonds of love strong

and united?

How can we keep

the ties of the past, present

and the future united in love?

How can we take care of our family

as Joseph and Mary did?

How can we take care

of the wider family of society?

Do we even dare to create our community

in the image of the Trinity?

Lord grant us the grace to take care of our family

and greater community in your name.
