Canticle of the Sun
  • Most high, all powerful, all good Lord! All
    praise is yours, all glory, all honor, and all
    blessing. To you, alone, Most High, do they
    belong. No mortal lips are worthy to pronounce
    your name.
  • Be praised, my Lord, through all your creatures,
    especially through my lord Brother Sun, who
    brings the day and you give light through him.
    And he is beautiful and radiant in all his
    splendor! Of you, Most High, he bears the
    likeness.
  • Be praised, my Lord, through Sister Moon and the
    stars in the heavens you have made them,
    precious and beautiful.
  • Be praised, my Lord, through Brothers Wind and
    Air, and clouds and storms, and all the weather,
    through which you give your creatures
    sustenance….
  • Be praised, my Lord, through those who forgive
    for love of you through those who endure
    sickness and trial. Happy those who endure in
    peace, for by you, Most High, they will be
    crowned.
  • Be praised, my Lord, through our Sister Bodily
    Death, from whose embrace no living person can
    escape. Woe to those who die in mortal sin! Happy
    those she finds doing your most holy will. The
    second death can do no harm to them…..
