God, I call on you to change me. May the blazing colors of a butterfly’s fragile wings remind me of the beauty found in your love ...
Show me the path to what comes next. Just as the butterfly has touched death and emerged as something new.
Flutter into my life, Oh, God! Renew my spirit and teach me to recognize change as it arrives.
To welcome it more and fear it less, to trust that you will protect and guide me through the darkness.
Lead me into the brightness of a new world, new day, new self with the butterfly as my example.
God, I call on you today.
Litany recited at the Angel Medical Center’s Hospice Butterfly Release.
