Joy with thanksgiving

O Lord we thank you for
One hundred years of existence
Of Cornelio* our dear father.

Filled with joy and gratitude
We offer our love and prayers
To you, O God, source of life.

It is a mystery of love
That even our father cannot believe;
New life given to him coloured with faith and joy.

With one voice with the other siblings
We greet you dear father.
Happy blessed centennial celebration.

To you, O God, be honoured and praised
Sharing your life with all of us.
Life is a mystery of your love.

To our dear father Cornelio
We are one with you with our prayers.
We love you and with gratitude to God we remain!

* Sr Tina has written this poem of gratitude to God for her father’s centennial birthday.
