"A Liturgy For Picking Up Your Dog's Poo"

Heavenly Father,

You know that not everything in life

Is pleasant.

So it is with the task

Of picking up my dog's poo.

But why am I doing this?

At least when we are outside,

I do this for the sake of my neighbor,

Whose good I am meant to desire

Above my own convenience.

Lord, may you transform my annoyance at this task

Into an ever-growing capacity

For loving my neighbor

As I love you, O God.
