|Ste. Chappelle, Paris.|
O God we thank You for the joy You give us in Your creation. Buoyed by your Holy Spirit, may our rejoicing testify throughout the world that your Love endures forever! Let us be holy fools, instead of being wholly foolish by failing to give You thanks and praise! Let our songs of praise echo in the valleys of despair, for our God is lifting us up on the wings of grace. May weeping depart with the rising sun, and joy come to live in the home of our hearts. May the ground of our hearts, which has been watered with tears, bear the fruit of love and compassion for others. Knowing You are ever and always before, beside, and behind us, we offer You the petitions of these loved ones.
