The One within this circle has changed the world
the round, sorrowful, broken world
has become a cradle for God.

The incoherence of war, poverty, racism, torture...
and the chaos of unrest...
this round, sorrowful and broken world
is the cradle of God.

Thank you for all you are and all you do to heal the systems
that keep this world broken.

May the cradle of God find its home within you now and always.

Blessings of peace to you and to all those you love
in this Holy Season.

Sr. Patricia Chappell, SNDdeN
and the Staff of Pax Christi USA
