God of heaven and earth, you promise to make your blessings known as far as the curse is found. We pray for that, and we live for that. In our vocations and occupations, give us the wisdom and grace and skill to keep on keeping on, that the work of our hands will be integral to that blessing in the worlds of business and banking, politics and the arts, education and the law, health care and international development, at home and all over the world– as far as the curse is found. Amen and amen.
“…In the world it calls itself Tolerance; but in Hell it is called Despair. … It is the sin which believes in nothing, cares for nothing, seeks to know nothing, interferes with nothing, enjoys nothing, loves nothing, hates nothing, finds purpose in nothing, lives for nothing, and only remains alive because there is nothing it would die for….”
