PRAYER OF SAINT BASIL OF CAESAREA Deeper Sense Of Fellowship With All Living Things

O God, grant us a deeper sense of fellowship with all living this,
our little brothers and sisters
to whom in common with us
you have given this earth as home.
We recall with regret that in the past
we have acted high-handedly
and cruelly in exercising our domain over them.
Thus, the voice of the earth
which should have risen to you in song
has turned into a groan of travail.
May we realize that all these creatures
also live for themselves and for you,
not for us alone.
They too love the goodness of life,
as we do, and serve you better
in their way than we do in ours.

Amen.
