May peace flow
like an ocean of grace,
quench our longing souls,
irrigate our parched and thirsty Earth.
May every puppy, cat and tree
be awash in beauty and delight.
May this sacred planet we call home
flourish and thrive.
May each hungry heart be filled.
May we no longer be bystanders.
May we arrest global warming,
bless and sustain the arctic ice.
Today we pray,
may the extinction spasms cease.
We join hands and hearts
together on this Eucharistic day.
