“I must make my office with great care. It is my daily offering of fresh flowers to the Beloved Spouse.” ~Charles de Foucauld
Lord open our lips,
And our mouth shall proclaim your praise.
New every morning is your love, great God of light, and all day long you are working for good in your world. Stir up in us the desire to serve you and to devote each day to your Son, our Savior Jesus. We praise you with joy, loving God, for your grace is better than life itself. Once again you have sustained us through the darkness and blessed us with life in this new day. Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we might sing for joy and be glad all our days.
Let us bless the Lord.
Thanks be to God
Thanks be to God--Creator, Redeemer, and Giver of Life.
We go in peace to love and serve the Lord, and to live our lives so that those to whom love is a stranger will find in us generous friends. Amen.
