God, our heavenly Father, thanks. Thanks for having so loved us that you adopted us as your own children. In the world without you, we were at the mercy of the devil and of dangerous wolves. We were dirty because of our sins, like orphans that no one loves and without hope. We did not know the truth, and we were incapable of understanding it. But there was one who loved us always – you did. In your Son, Jesus Christ, you showed us your infinite grace. In your Holy Spirit, you enabled us to love you. Thanks. Amen.
