PRAYER OF THE WEEK
The Hatred which divides nation from nation, race from race, class from class,
The covetous desires of people and nations to possess what is not their own,
The greed which exploits the labours of men and women
and lays waste the earth
Our envy of the welfare and happiness of others
Our indifference to the plight of the homeless and the refugee
The lust which uses for ignoble ends the bodies of men and women,
The pride which leads us to trust in ourselves and not in God
