Thank you, Father, for having created us and given
us to each other in the human family.
Thank you for being with us in all our joys and sorrows,
for your comfort in our sadness,
your companionship in our loneliness.
Thank you for yesterday, today, tomorrow
and for the whole of our lives.
Thank you for friends, for health and for grace.
May we live this and every day conscious
of all that has been given to us.
From The Catholic Prayer Book, compiled by Msgr. Michael Buckley.
