Collect of the Day

God of blessing and woe,

Disturbing the deadly order of the world:

Give us faith tested in poverty,

Hunger for what really satisfies,

Eyes softened by tears and hearts ready to laugh

At all that is false and pompous

So that we might be witnesses to the dignity of life:

Through Jesus Christ, who turns the world upside down. Amen.
