SEVENTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME — Year C

Gospel: Luke 11:1-13

A reading from the Translation of the Aramaic Lord’s Prayer based on the Gospel of Luke.

O Birther! Father-Mother of the Cosmos/you create all that moves in light.
Focus your light within us- make it useful; as the rays of a beacon show the way
Create your reign of unity now-through our fiery hearts and willing hands
Your one desire then acts with ours, as in all light, so in all forms.
Grant what we need each day in bread and insight: subsistence for the call of growing life.
Loose the cords of mistake binding us,
as we release the strands we hold of others’ guilt.
Don’t let us enter forgetfulness,
but free us from unripeness.
From you is born all ruling will, the power and the life to do,
the song that beautifies all, from age to age it renews.
Truly- power to these statements-
may they be the source from which all my actions grow:
Amen
