Justice for Children

Loving God

You have called us to work for true justice in our communities
and to be messengers of freedom
for all who are not treated as your children.

Give us grace to put our faith into action
to end the violence and cruelty that overshadows many children’s lives.
Jesus taught us to welcome children and learn from them.

May we use our imagination to put ourselves in children’s shoes
and learn to teach and guide them with wisdom,
gentleness and understanding.

Let us treat each child as we would treat the Christ child. Amen.
