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.
