The Coventry Litany of Reconciliation

This litany is said every Friday at noon in the ruins adjacent to the new Coventry cathedral.

All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.
The hatred which divides nation from nation, race from race, class from class. Father forgive
The covetous desires of people and nations to possess what is not their own. Father forgive
The greed which exploits the work of human hands and lays waste the earth, Father forgive
Our envy of the welfare and happiness of others, Father forgive
Our indifference to the plight of the imprisoned, the homeless, the refugee, Father forgive
The lust which dishonours the bodies of men, women and children, Father forgive
The pride which leads us to trust in ourselves and not in God, Father forgive
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another as God in Christ  forgave you.
