Let the Lord be with you
Branson’s grandfather was ill, and would be going into surgery the next day. His catechist asked the 6-year-old if he would like to sit at the prayer table together. Her own prayers for his grandfather were offered in silence- as she didn't want to influence the words of his own prayer offering. After a significant period of silence he opened his mouth and the following words came forth:
Let the Lord be with you.
Christ's name, the Lord, with love and care.
Be with my grandfather and all those who need you.
When I look at this candle I can see you, Lord,
But the only thing that is in my heart is you, and the earth.
On earth, I see you in every rock and stone.
Make sure that the earth is in your heart and all people.
