Blessing of Centers of Social Communication

Lord God Almighty,

We humbly praise you,

for you enlighten and inspire

those who by probing the powers implanted in creation

develop the work of your hands in wonderful ways.

Look with favor on your servants

who use the technology discovered by long research.

Enable them to communicate truth,

to foster love, to uphold justice and right,

and to provide enjoyment.

Let them promote and support

that peace between peoples

which Christ the Lord brought from heaven,

for he lives and reigns for ever and ever.
