A prayer to the Creator – Fratelli Tutti

by Guest Contributor

'A prayer to the Creator' is one of two prayers quoted by Pope Francis in Fratelli Tutti which highlights key themes of encounter, justice and peace. These particular themes are valued by Columban Missionaries who live and share the Gospel of Jesus, whilst working in solidarity with the poor and the exploited earth, for justice, peace and the integrity of creation.

A prayer to the Creator

Lord, Father of our human family,
you created all human beings equal in dignity:
pour forth into our hearts a fraternal spirit
and inspire in us a dream of renewed encounter,
dialogue, justice and peace.
Move us to create healthier societies
and a more dignified world,
a world without hunger, poverty, violence and war.

May our hearts be open
to all the peoples and nations of the earth.
May we recognize the goodness and beauty
that you have sown in each of us,
and thus forge bonds of unity, common projects,
and shared dreams.
