Here is a lovely prayer, composed by MR. CATOLICK, for the Crown Nominations Committee as they seek God's guidance in their search for the next archbishop of Canterbury.
Dear Father, help the CNC members to put away their own agendas and let them know that they, and their tribes have had their time. Help them to listen to people outside of London and not to just give lip service to the northern folk.
Father, we just ask that you show them how to get their secretarial work right and pass on information. Father, put your protecting power around their photocopier so that documents can be read.
Father, help them to remember more and more that Oxford and Cambridge are not the only universities in England. Father, help them to show compassion and love, cast out any spot of arrogance and high handedness, and protect them from snobbery and pomposity.
Father, let your Holy spirit come down and work amongst them. Let them know that you know the secrets of all our hearts and know even the secrets of the CNC. Amen.
