Holy One,
thank you for those who serve
as our religious leaders.
Bless those who stand in the breach,
tend to our hidden wounds,
channel the riches of our tradition,
remind us where we come from
and how to imagine a brighter path forward.
May the hearts of those
who hold ours in their tender embrace
be held in turn by You,
but please, Holy One,
remind us to be kind
to those who humbly work
to stand as messengers, conduits,
vessels, of Your Gentleness.
Bless the families and beloved friends of our clergy,
who hold them in quieter spaces,
often unseen,
often absorbing some of the heaviness
as they care for the caregivers among us.
May we find strength together,
knowing we truly are one,
called to stand together in support of one another,
especially those who dedicate their lives
to teaching this affirming sacred message.
Amen.
