1 God of comfort hear us

2 To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven:

3 a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,

4 a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,

5 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,

6 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,

7 a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,

8 a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak,

9 a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.

10 Today is the time to pray. Today is the time to hope. Today is the time to mourn. Today as a school community and as a New Zealand community we stop to think about and pray for those affected by the earthquake in Christchurch yesterday.

11 A reading from the Gospel according to John: Jesus said: "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid. This is the Gospel of the Lord

12 Let us pray: We pray for the children in Christchurch, especially those in our fellow Catholic Schools, that they may be cared for and supported within their communities God of comfort, hear us Lord hear our prayer
