Every year the chaplaincy team at CMC produce a Maitri booklet, which provides a framework for CMC’s weekly departmental prayers and reflection. “Maitri” in Sanskrit means “Friendship”. You can download the 2022 volume below or request a hard copy from the office. The themes and reflections are designed to fulfil the vision of Aunt Ida by strengthening the Christ centred community and bringing abundant life to the people so that the reality of the Kingdom of God may be experienced.
Aunt Ida’s Prayer
Father, whose life is within me and whose love is ever about me, grant that Thy life may be maintained in my life today and everyday; that with gladness of heart, without haste or confusion of thought, I may go about my daily tasks, conscious of ability, to meet every rightful demand, seeing the larger meaning of little things, and finding beauty and love everywhere and in the sense of Thy presence may I walk through the hours breathing the atmosphere of love rather than anxious striving.
