Litany for the Third Scrutiny: April 6, 2014

Response: Christ in me, arise

 

The Third Scrutiny: The Fifth Sunday of Lent, April 6, 2014

 

From the restraints of anger and rage…

From the restraints of resentment and lack of hope…

From the restraints of devaluing all life and our potential…

From the restraints of cheating and lying…

 

From the restraints of not believing God will love us and change us…

From the restraints of our negative behaviors…

From the restraints of ignoring people surviving urban poverty…

From the restraints of judging people living outside…

 

From the restraints of labels and judgments on people…

From the restraints of hardness of heart and ill-will toward family…

From the restraints of jealousy and jumping to false conclusions…

From the restraints of envy and a lack of gratitude…

 

From the restraints of corruption among leaders and governments…

From the restraints of hostility among nations…

From the restraints of indifference to the suffering of others…

From the restraints of hatred of our neighbors…

 

From the restraints of violence and war…

From the restraints of busyness and lack of attention…

From the restraints of lack of concern for the elderly and the ill…

From the restraints of our inability to care for people with disabilities…

 

And from all evil…

And from all evil…

And from all evil…
