Prayer for Saturday (Suijin Matsuri)

Today is the Shinto festival of Suijin Matsuri, honoring the Kami of Water.

No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks.
~ St. Ambrose (340-397)

Prayer for Sister Water

We praise and thank You, Lord,
for the gift of living water.
Guide us to use it wisely,
learn from its humility,
consume it sparingly,
and protect its purity,
so that with St. Francis,
we may truly enjoy water.
Amen.

(Br. Cathal Duddy, OFM)
