Until recently New Zealand was one of two countries that did not have cattle infected by the Mycoplasma bovis cattle disease. The outbreak is interconnected with our Catholic faith and here is a prayer for the time of turmoil that our farmers are in.
Creator God, source of love and life, grant hope, wisdom and courage to those who farm and those who serve them. Keep them safe in this time of turmoil. Help them to practice what is best for our environment, our communities, our country. We can make this prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen
