In the first born of all creation,
all things in heaven and on earth were created.
In him all things hold together,
things visible and invisible.
In him all the fullness of God is pleased to dwell,
and through him God reconciles all things.
May we be reconciled today to ourselves,
to our fellow creatures, and to God.
