Kaitiaki Corner

This month saw the first Laudato Si’ meeting where Kaitiaki Club members came together to pray and discuss ‘Caring for One Another’.  May’s monthly intention was inspired by ‘Pentecost, we pray for the diversity of people and gifts in our movement.’  “Each of us has his or her own personal identity and is capable of entering into dialogue with others and with God himself.” (LS 81)

The prayer we opened our meeting with was:

Holy Spirit, You are God’s presence in our hearts, bringing life, love and joy, like a caring Mother.  You are in singing birds, hidden in vegetation, in the subtle fragrance of inconspicuous flowers… You are a mystery, invisible, but powerfully influencing our life. We open our hearts to You.

Please inspire us and give us wisdom, courage, and hope. Let us make use of our various talents and Your gifts. Please teach us patience, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Guide us the right way and teach us to love You, others, and ourselves. Please help us to work together in peace and respect every person, regardless of all the differences between us, but also to respect nature and everything else you have created for us. Last but not least, let us always remember about our dignity of being Your children and about our freedom to serve others, like Jesus.
