As we begin what is celebrated by Loreto schools around Australia as the Year of Felicity, we share with you this Felicity Prayer. The words of this prayer were crafted collaboratively by the Loreto student leaders from all Loreto schools in Australia and will guide our communities in their reflection on and expression of Felicity in 2021.
God of generosity and joy,
who gifts us with open minds and large hearts,
renew our vision and deepen our hope.
Help us to:
delight in the beauty of creation,
affirm the goodness in all people,
create a community of kindness and
lead with empathy and courage.
As friends of Mary Ward,
may we serve God with great love and liberty of mind
and trust in God’s grace and goodness.
May felicity brighten the lives of people everywhere.
We make this prayer:
in the name of Jesus who inspires us with good news,
and the Holy Spirit who moves us ever outwards.
