Centenary Prayer of Remembrance: Lord, merciful and kind, I remember the men, women and children who died during 1916 and throughout the troubled journey of our islands history. Ar dheis de go raibh a n-anamacha. Look kindly, I pray for the people of Ireland form all traditions at home or abroad. To you O God we long to sing a new song of compassion, inclusion and engagement in a spirit of true freedom. You know my frail heart and my frayed history and now another day begins. Help me to believe in beginnings and sing a new song for Ireland. Moladh go deo le dia.  Praise God forever!

It would be very appropriate to say this prayer during the coming week. Note: This s a shortened version of the centenary prayer that Fr. Seamus Madigan will say in front of the GPO on this Sunday at the State Commemorations.
