New Life arise from our old, from those who have gone before us, those who have given us everything, those who have lived and died in hope and in love. May we answer the call of each day to love more boldly, to take action with one another for care and for compassion. May we give thanks each day for this life, this day, those who have gone before us and those who will come after, and most of all for the chance to love, to live, to be generous and to be kind. Blessings beyond measure, grant us courage and know our gratitude, waking and opening to what is here and now and needful before us. Amen.
