Live in me, Spirit of Life (a litany)

Live in me, Spirit of Life (a litany)
Litany

We pray:

Live in me, Spirit of Life.

We are alive
Because others have lived
And we all were born within homes we did not build.

Live in me, Spirit of Life.

Every one of us is alone
No one can live a life but each self
And we all will have made our choices before we die.

Live in me, Spirit of Life.

We are not alone
Any act one of us will choose must change other lives
Just as every act others choose changes our own lives.

Live in me, Spirit of Life.

We are hurt
Most often in error
By the very risk of living we all accept in some way.

Live in me, Spirit of Life.

We know joy
When souls embraces others
And new souls come to life between us.

Live in me, Spirit of Life.

Alone and bound by unbreakable bonds,
Knowing hurt and joy,
We choose to live:
So that others may live,
And we may bring each other joy
And learn to salve each others' hurts.

Live in me, Spirit of Life.

We chose a life
That blesses those who live
When we are dead and forgotten by all but God
And so they may bless the home of love we leave for them.

Live in me, Spirit of Life, that we may live in You.

Amen. Blessed Be.
