A prayer for patience, temperance, and thoughtful action: In this world of interconnected relationships, it is common to misinterpret signals, misunderstand communications, and miss entirely the meaning behind the words. May we strive to communicate more clearly. May we work to ground our actions in thoughtful consideration. May we take the moment necessary to breathe, to center, and to always act appropriately. And because we will fail in this, may we practice the virtue of reconciliation, recognizing we all face challenges, both external and internal. For the affirmation of the inherent worth and dignity of every person, including ourselves, we are grateful. Blessed Be, and Amen.
