Be thou my vision,O Lord of my heart,
Be all else but naught to me,
Save that thou art;
Be thou my best thought
In the day and the night,
Both waking and sleeping,
Thy presence my light.
Lyrics: unknown but attributed to Iris Christian poet, Saint Dallân, translated by Eleanor Hull
“let the quietness of God enfold… all who have no peace”. as we watch our world fill with people who have no peace, may these words be offered as an act of solidarity.
Make us sensitive, God. Sensitive to the sound of the words which others speak, and to the silences in between.
May we find ways to experience more of the silences – where selfish anger might be turned to compassion and concern for one another.

to live a life of gratitude –
this we choose each day.
If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “thank you,” that would suffice.
– Meister Eckhart
