Blessed One, who rolls away from us the disgrace of all things, restore us to the light of welcome and becoming. Lift us from the mire of shortcomings and disappointments, poor choices and heartbreaks, that we may see the glory of your countenance that revels in our souls. Join us to one another in celebrations of redemption, and cast away the shadows that limit our vision. Inspire us to reach out to one another, to tend to the wounds that devastate the created landscape and call forth with love the wonder of all that is made new. For the sake of all that dwells in and yearns for the vastness that is You. Amen.
