-YOU ARE SENT, CONSTITUTION OF THE SCHOOL SISTERS OF NOTRE DAME
All powerful God,
you are present in the universe
and in the smallest of your creatures.
You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.
Pour out upon us the power of your love,
that we may protect life and beauty.
Fill us with your peace, that we may live
as brothers and sisters, harming no one.
O God of the poor,
help us to rescue the abandoned
and forgotten of this earth,
so precious in your eyes.
Bring healing to our lives,
that we may protect the world and not prey on it,
The Incarnation reminds us that there is an abiding relationship between the Creator and creation, that God so loved the world that God sent his son to be among us that we might not perish (John 3:16). Laudato Si reminds us that every single person, every single child – not just the Christ Child, is unique and can never be “reduced to the status of an object.” And yet child labor, the use of children as objects for production, persists worldwide.
