One Common Origin – October 20


Loving God You have given all peoples one common origin, and your will is to gather them as one family in yourself.

Fill the hearts of all with the fire of your love and the desire to ensure justice for all our sisters and brothers.

By sharing the good things you give us may we secure justice and equality for every human being, an end to all division, and a human society built on love and peace.

John Paul II, Sollicitudo Rei Socialis, 1987
