May our liberation come as we seek
to bring liberation to others, realizing
that our freedoms are bound together
in our common humanity.
May our pain expand our capacity
for joy, our brokenness lead to
realizations of beauty within, our
despair challenge us to cling to hope,
and our suffering invite us to love.
May we realize that God's presence
is found in the voices of the
oppressed among us.
May we learn to love ourselves as
we love the oppressed in our world,
inviting us into an experience of
liberation that is nearer to us
than ever before.
