Prayer Offered for June 1, 2023

The following quote is attributed to the Elders of the Hopi Nation:

We have been telling people that this is the Eleventh Hour; now we must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour. And there are things to be considered…

Know your garden.

Speak your truth.

Create your community.

Be good to each other.

And do not look outside yourself for a leader.

The time of the lone wolf is over. Banish the word ‘struggle’ from your attitude and your vocabulary.

All that we must do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.

Gracious God of all time and of this moment, we thank You for where You will lead us this day—in service of Your people, with compassion, courage, and commitment, and in awe of Your making us worthy to be the people we’ve been waiting for.—AMEN.

Sr. Michelle Gorman, RSM
