St. Teresa of Calcutta (Mother Teresa) often reminded people that each of us is unique, and each has our own contribution to make. Mother Teresa often said: “I cannot do what you do, and you cannot do what I do, but together we can do something beautiful for God.” Let’s pray that each of us makes good use of our talents, and that we set out to work well with others:
You have enriched our lives in many ways,
and we remember with thanksgiving
all who have loved, cared for, and supported us over the years.
Show us how best to use the time and talents
you have given each of us,
and lead us to grow in appreciation
of the contribution that others make.
May your Spirit empower us to work well with others,
and bring out the best in those with whom we share our lives.
Through Christ our Lord.
