The Earth Hope Prayer

Faithful Mother Earth,
You are God's glory.
In the womb of your glory
We are created
And filled with every gift.
We stand in communion
With all living beings,
Especially our sisters and brothers in
Earth Hope.
Make us instruments of
Your faithfulness to life,
Your justice,
Your hope,
As we open to the divine compassion
To which we are drawn.
Amen.
