Justice by a follower of Fra Angelico (Guido di Pietro) (Italian, Vicchio di Mugello ca. 1395–1455 Rome.) Robert Lehman Collection, 1975, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY.

Ever-living God, you keep faith forever. In hope we pray: God, in your justice, give us life.  

You gaze upon all you have created: open our eyes to the beauty of creation, and fill us with wonder and awe.  

God, in your justice, give us life. 

You behold the world in love: imbue leaders with integrity, and thwart strategies of war and oppression.  

God, in your justice, give us life. 

You call us to holiness: remove from our hearts all traces of prejudice, racism, and falsehood.  

God, in your justice, give us life.  

Our Father . . .  

May God strengthen us to love our neighbor and pray for our enemies, through Jesus our brother. Amen.
