This prayer is from For The Love of One Another (1989), a special message from the Bishops’ Committee on Black Catholics of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops on the Occasion of the Tenth Anniversary of the Pastoral Letter, Brothers and Sisters to Us, the U.S. Catholic bishops’ Pastoral Letter on Racism (1979).
Let us worship God
God our Creator, you created humankind in your image,
and blessed us with your love.Â
Help us to show that love to one another as we work for equality for all
races in education, housing, public services, and employment opportunity.Â
Give us strength and courage to speak out against injustice, and to work for
the transformation of unjust systems that keep some in bondage: that we
may more fully live out your kingdom here on earth; through Jesus Christ
your son, who came to set us free.
