A prayer for gay marriage

"Go in Peace to Love and Serve the Lord."
This is one of my favourite things that the priest says when closing Mass.

So it was both a responsibility and privilege when I was asked to read this prayer at the wedding of some very dear friends of mine, just recently:

"We are reminded today that many do not share the same freedoms that we do. Like our friends in same sex relationships who cannot take part in the ritual of marriage. 

We pray that we might live in a just and equal society that sees and values the Love and Humanity in each other."

We tweaked the wording but I really like the sentiment of this prayer. It is peaceful and loving. It is unselfish and kind.

The moral of this random shit is: listen to your heart and do good. It serves us all.
