This advent I pray
To live deeply, with purpose
To live freely, with detachment
To live wisely, with humility
To live justly, with compassion
To live lovingly, with fidelity
To live mindfully, with awareness
To live gratefully, with generously
To live fully, with enthusiasm
Help me to hold this vision
and to daily renew it in my heart,
becoming ever more one with you. Amen.
