Let us pray.

Father, how difficult it is for us to realize that we are not the only ones, that you call everyone. Your Word is present to all, even from the womb, revealing to all once and for all, yet in every moment, the fullness of your truth, and summoning all to accept your gift of divine life and to grow in it in every situation. May we recognize in all of humanity our sisters and brothers. All are your children in grace.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
