Wind of God:
move over Katrina's chaos:
create hope
where there is only despair;
bring life
where death stalks the streets;
give birth to love
where anger and violence live.

Breath of God:
blow away
all worries and fears,
all distress and hopelessness,
all doubt and brokenness.

Spirit of adoption:
reunite families that have
been torn apart;
bring communities together
that they might rebuild
their common life;
sweep us together
that we might reach out
to serve our sisters and brothers,
knowing that we are
one Family.

Spirit of God,
Spirit of Hope,
Spirit of Life:
move in our midst
in all the days to come.
