Happy Canada Day!
HAPPY CANADA DAY! Today we look at a prayer from the Roman Catholic Diocese of London as we focus on the blessing it is to be Canadian.
Let us pray.
Father Almighty and Creator God; From the heights of a snow-capped peak in the Rockies, to the depths of a mine in Sudbury, From the crowds on the subway in rush hour, to miles travelled in Nunavit without seeing a soul, From a huge pine tree in the forest, to the croak of a bullfrog at dusk, From the mighty moose to the tiniest spider, from maple syrup to hockey, This is Canada, O Lord, our home that is a gift from You. Today we honour that gift, and give thanks for it. Father Almighty, continue to stand with us in this great land, and pour out Your love, protection and mercy upon Canada. St. Joseph; Patron Saint of Canada, pray for us!
