CENTENARY PRAYER OF
Lord, Merciful and Kind,
I remember the men, women and children
who died during 1916 and throughout the
troubled journey of our island’s history.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a n-anamacha.
Look kindly I pray, on the people of Ireland
from all traditions, at home and abroad.
To you O God, we long to sing a new song of
compassion, inclusion and engagement in a
spirit of true freedom.
You know my frail heart and my frayed
history and now another day begins. Help me
to believe in beginnings, and sing a new song
Moladh go deo le Dia
Praise God forever!
