A repost

O God, send us friends

those who commit themselves totally,

those who forget themselves,

those who love in more than words,

those who truly give their lives until the end.

Give us Love, humble and fiery,

persons capable of making the leap to insecurity,

to the surprises and uncertainties of poverty

Give us Hope,

that accepts to be diluted among the masses,

without pretensions of erecting their own pedestals,

without using their superiority for their own advantage.

Give us Faith, Faith of today

in love with a simple life,

efficient liberators of the poor,

lovers of peace,

pure in heart,

resolved never to betray,

ready to accept any task

to help anywhere, free and obedient,

spontaneous and tenacious,

sweet and strong.

Send us friends LORD, send us friends!

(prayer of a Christian community)
