A prayer for our community in Cumbia

This is based on a poem by Bud Osborn who wrote about Fr Maximilian Kolbe, who gave his life for another man in Auschwitz and led those who were dying around him, to suffer with hope….

Peace
amongst a community shattered
Hope
in community absorbed by pain
Forgiveness
for those whom have lost without justice
Christ
be the words when non can be found
Strength
for community that cannot be destroyed
though people are scattered and lives are shattered
Grace
that teaches that community cannot be extinguished as long as a single human being steps forward
to embrace another.
Amen
