The Archdiocese of Edmonton is sponsoring an interesting series of talks called "Nothing More Beautiful". It is the beginning of a 5 year process of reflection and renewal in the Archdiocese lead by Archbishop Richard Smith.
These once a month sessions combine a catechetical talk and a witness talk in a single evening, are available in video and print format online, include reflection questions and prayer.
This coming Thursday evening, the topic is The Human Body in God's Design.
I love the prayer (available in English and French)
we come before you in praise and thanksgiving
for you have called us to be your own.
You sent your Word
to bring us truth
and your Spirit to make us holy.
Through them we come to know
the Beauty that is You.
Draw us to a new encounter with Jesus, your Son.
Deepen our love for His Church.
Help us to embrace anew
the beauty of our faith in all of its richness.
Empower us to see there is nothing more beautiful
than our relationship with You,
so that we may reflect to others your image,
in which we have been created.
We pray that, rooted and grounded in your love,
and through the healing power of the Cross of your Son,
we may be strengthened for mission
by your Holy Spirit.
We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.
