    'A Prayer Before Holy Mass'
    May the almighty and merciful Lord grant us
    joy and peace,
    amendment of life,
    room for true repentance,
    the grace and comfort of the Holy Spirit,
    and perserverance in good works.

    Creator God,

    who made the beautiful world,
    appointed us as its Guardians,
    and gifted us with everything we need,

    forgive us

    for the times we cause it harm,
    for the times our way of life,
    affects our neighbours.

    inspire us

    to care for the environment,
    to help rebuild lives and communities,
    to share in the griefs and anxieties,
    joys and hopes of all your people,
    so that all your creation may flourish.
