God of mercy and justice, shake us up!
Make the pain of the victims and their families our pain,
God of mercy and justice, shake us up!
Uproot the culture of abuse in our communities.

God of mercy and justice, shake us up!
Inspire us to reshape the Church,
God of mercy and justice, shake us up!
Attune us to the Gospel.

God of mercy and justice, shake us up!
Arouse our solidarity,
God of mercy and justice, shake us up!
Commit us to creating a culture of care with our Church.

Andrea Dean, inspired by Pope Francis’ Letter, 20 August 2018
