Choose one song Celtic Blessing Alive-O 6 p. 40 Time and Time and Time Again Alive-O 6 p. 292 Opening Prayer God wants us to treat the world with respect and love because God created it for our use and

enjoyment. He wants us to develop the world and to share its blessings with all people. St. Francis was like God in the way he loved Creation. He loved birds; He loved animals wild and tame. He loved fish. The inspired writers of the Bible loved Creation too.

Let us pray: All Psalm 148 Sun and moon, and all you bright stars, Come and offer praise.

Let all things praise the name of the Lord! Sea monsters and the deep sea, Fire and hail, snow and frost, And every stormy wind, Come and praise the Lord! All mountains and hills,

Fruit trees and cedars, Every wild and tame animal, All reptiles and birds, Come and praise the Lord! Every man and every woman, Young people and old, Come praise the Lord!

Today as we reflect on the life of St. Francis of Assisi we pray in his words: All Lord make me an instrument of your peace, Where there is hatred, let me sow your love; Where there is injury, pardon;

Where there is despair, hope; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is darkness, light; And where there is sadness, joy. O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek,

To be consoled as to console; To be understood as to understand; To be loved as to love; For it is in giving that we receive; It is in pardoning that we are pardoned; It is in pardoning that we are pardoned; And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Closing Prayer Saint Francis was at home in the natural world. He loved all that God made. He loved it because God made it. Lord, make us like Saint Francis. We make this prayer through Christ our Lord,

Amen Choose one song Bless the Lord Alive-O 6 p. 55 Within Gods Creation Alive-O 6 p. 13
