God, source of all freedom,
this day is bright with the memory
of those who declared that life and liberty
are your gift to every being.
Help us to continue a good work begun long ago. Make our vision clear and our will strong;
that only in human solidarity will we find liberty, and justice only in the honor that belongs to every life on earth.
Turn our hearts toward the family of nations;
to understand the ways of others,
to offer friendship,
and to find safety only in the common good to all.
