Collect
Keep us, O God, from pettiness; let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.
Let us be done with fault-finding and leave off self-seeking.
May we put away all pretense and meet each other face to face without self-pity and without prejudice.
May we never be hasty in judgment and always generous.
Teach us to put into action our better impulses, straight-forward and unafraid.
Let us take time for all things; make us grow calm, serene, and gentle.
Grant that we may realize, it is the little things that create differences; that in the big things of life we are one.
And may we strive to touch and to know the great common woman’s heart of us all, and, O Lord God, let us not forget to be kind.
—Mary Stuart.
