The following blessing I reworked from one written by a Franciscan brother who lives at hilfield friary, dorchester.

We break this bread for those who love the sacred mother,
and pray that one day we may be as one.

We break this bread for the great green earth,
for the forests, fields and flowers we are destroying,
And pray that one day, gaia’s original blessing will be restored.

We pray for those who have no bread,
for the hungry and homeless,
and all who are refugees,
and pray that one day this world may be a home to all.

We break this bread for the broken parts of ourselves,
for our broken relationships and the wounded child in each of us,
and pray that one day we may find wholeness that comes from this sacred earth.
