The World Is about to Turn
Creator God, You created the universe out of chaos.
Help us to see your order amid the chaos of our time.
Your Spirit brought life to all creation
Send your Spirit to stir our creativity.
You set the earth and all things in motion.
Attune our hearts to the rhythm of your movement in our lives and our world.
As we take time away to consider the history of humanity,
Open our minds and hearts to see the world anew.
May our eyes see the ways you move in our world.
May our hearts awaken to the call to build your kingdom.
We pray together.
God, creator of heaven and earth,
Let the first of your justice burn
throughout the world
and in our hearts.
Send your Spirit to us as we explore together
the future of Catholic health care in the unfolding of the human story.
We ask all this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
