PENITENCE AND FORGIVENESS


Leader: For the times that we have erected
barriers, to exclude those who we
experience as different from ourselves,
Lord, have mercy.


All: Lord, have mercy.


Leader: On the occasions that we have avoided
contact with those who behave differently
from ourselves,
Christ, have mercy.


All: Christ, have mercy.


Leader: In the situations when we have failed to
see the light of Christ in those who appear
different from ourselves,
Lord, have mercy.


All: Lord, have mercy.


Leader: May the Source of all life
forgive our excluding instincts,
remove the fear of difference from our
souls,
and enable us to embrace all who are
created in God’s image.

All: Amen.
