Harmony with all living things

Oh Goddess,
grant us a deeper sense of fellowship
with all living things
and our brothers and sisters
to whom you have given this earth as home.

May we realize that all these creatures
also live for themselves and for you.

They too love the goodness of life,
as we do,
and serve you better in their way
than we do in ours

St Basil of Caesarea (329 - 379) - adapted
