A Collect to Value People over Law

Lord of Heaven and Earth, who desires good for your children, keep us from taking away what is healthy and nurturing and good from those who desire it, that we would not elevate propriety or culture over people, but would seek to give to others and ourselves what is truly best and nourishing for our souls, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who challenged our man-made laws and opened the way to you through the Holy Spirit. Amen. “Mary has chosen something good, which will not be taken away from her.” – Luke 10:42
