FRIDAY IN THE TWENTY-SEVENTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME
O God of Creation, you have blessed us with the changing of seasons. As we welcome the autumn months, may the earlier setting of the sun remind us to make time to rest. May the brilliant colors of the leaves remind us of the wonder of your creation. May the steam of our breath in the cool air remind us that it is you who give us the breath of life. May the harvest from the fields remind us of the abundance we have been given and bounty we are to share with others. May the dying of summer’s spirit remind us of your great promise that death is temporary and life is eternal. We praise you for your goodness forever and ever. Amen.
