The Gift of Age: A reflection from Fr. Dan Crosby
Lord Jesus, you promised
"Behold, I make all things new!"
We ask you to renew us in mind and body.
Help us to use our years of experience
By sharing the wisdom we have acquired
With enthusiasm and imagination.
Expand our interests so that we might find new ways
Of helping others, especially younger people
Who may be looking for guidance and support.
We thank you, Lord Jesus, for the beauty of years,
The freshness of dreams,
And the encouragement of happy memories.
Let our lives, through your Spirit work in us,
Become second Springs,
Bursting with the joyful colors of hope.
The warm breezes of love,
And the delicate showers of grace
Which nourish the continual growth we desire.
Bless all who love us and those whom we love
And unite us ever more closely
As members of your body on earth
Until the day when we reign with you for ever."
