Autumn Prayer

God of all creation,
you give us the gift of seasons to mark our journey through time.
The season of autumn, with its change of colors and falling
leaves, reminds us that sometimes things must die and fall away for new life to arise.
Such is the message of the cross —
that through death to self we find life in all its richness.
In those moments when we experience setbacks for failures,
help us to remember that you are with us always,
and that there is no failure or sin your love cannot heal.
Help us to trust in you and in your promise of new life.

Peter Jarret, C.S.C.

Prayer of St. Richard
