I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino

You, the one from whom on different paths
All of us have come.
To whom on different paths
All of us are going.
Make strong in our hearts what unites us;
Build bridges across all that divides us;
United make us rejoice in our diversity.
At one in our witness to your peace,
A rainbow of your glory.
Amen.
