The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Dear Disciples,
Greetings in Christ, who leads to repentance and healing.

This coming week we shall observe and honour The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, may it be for all a place where we meet each other meeting God.
I offer the following prayer written by Dean Don Bernhardt TSSF of the Diocese of Brandon.

Creator God,
You have made all humanity in your image and called us into relationship with you. You have set no one people to be above another but instead, remind us that we are your children and we are to love you and one another. Help us call to mind the mistakes of our shared past so that we may be continually reminded of our need for forgiveness and reconciliation. Guide us as we walk the good road as brothers and sisters. We ask this in the name of him who died for all, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Let us seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbour as ourselves.
In Christ,

2021 National Day of Truth and Reconciliation
