during the Year of Mercy
Blessed are you, God of all creation,
for you give us shelter from the cold
and the light of your Word to brighten the night.
We come bearing no gifts, for everything is a gift from you.
All we can offer is our love for one another and our faith in your Son.
Transform, then, these humble gifts into a sign of your presence,
and bless this house and all who come to it.
Here, may those who hunger and thirst be filled,
your children be clothed in glory and sheltered safe from harm.
Here, may the sick find healing,
those bound by darkness know freedom,
and our beloved dead be remembered always.
From here, send us, Lord, to share faith where there is doubt,
to be light where there is darkness,
to embrace the sinner, comfort the afflicted,
offer forgiveness, and show patience and kindness to all.
As we await the day when you will gather us
within the doors of our heavenly home,
keep the doors of our own hearts opened
and lead us all by the star of your mercy
that we may pray unceasingly and always trust in your love.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
