PRAYER FOR RECONCILIATION TO OUR LADY HELP OF CHRISTIANS
Composed by Fr Kevin Walsh. 1988
AUSTRALIA DAY 2017
The Great South Land of the Holy Spirit
was entrusted to a people who saw your mighty hand at work
in the majestic, rugged mountains, in the rolling plains, parched earth, flowing rivers and thundering surf.
May we, under the guidance of your Spirit, work at reconciliation, with all the different peoples of this land. May we reverence the “Dream Time” …and those wedded to this land; May we in turn respect and heal all that we have hurt; the land, its people and wild life.
We dedicate all our efforts under the patronage of Mary Help of Christians, who always points the way to wholeness, to harmony and to Jesus. We make this our prayer to you Father, through Christ Our Lord. AMEN.
