A Collect to Share One Another’s Pain and Joy

Gentle teacher, who stepped into our lives and our flesh in order to live among us, teach us to be present with one another and to share one another’s pain and joy, that we all might love and be loved as you have shown us and our hearts would be filled and satisfied with goodness, through you who gave yourself for others and was raised to new life by the Father through the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.’ – Rom. 12:15
