Bless today in special ways all the children, adults and families who see the world through the window of autism.
May Your Spirit burn bright in them and all who celebrate and honour the richness of our diversity during this Autism Awareness month of April.
Grant us, O Lord, the wisdom to see your image reflected in all of our differences, and to recognise the unique gifts we each have to offer.
May the doors of ministry in our Church continue to open wide in welcome to all of God's family.
We ask this in Jesus' holy name.
April is Autism Awareness Month in Australia. Prayer distributed by the National Catholic Partnership on Disability.
