Prayer for New Year’s Day (January 1)

My God, I want to wish you

a happy new year,

a year where all the children of the world

will be a little better:

a year where they will seek peace,

to share, to forgive, to love…

A year where they will be happy and grateful

for the love you give to them.

Prayer for the Holiday Season

My God, it is the holiday season, the time of rejoicing.

Good for pleasures and joys of the others

who sing, who dance, who are happy!

I have no ounce of jealousy for their happiness.

Only, it pains me

to think of all those who cannot celebrate.

Isolation, it pains me. You, stay with me.

Prayer for the Season of Advent

Lord our God, you have created human beings
to stand before you fully alive. (Irenaeus of Lyon)
Look at the men, women and children
crushed by the powers of evil:
illness, violence, poverty, injustice…
Keep us standing so that we can help them get up.
