Evening Prayer – 24 May 2018

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

As we seek to serve you, Lord

As we seek to follow your path, Lord

As we seek to share the light of your love, Lord

As we seek to be instruments of your peace, Lord

As we seek to simply be your servants, Lord

Hear this humble prayer

Dona Nobis Pacem

Grant Us Peace

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…

Pilgrimage – Christine Valters Paintner

“On a true pilgrimage, we soon discover that the journey has its own rhythm and momentum. We realize, if our hearts are listening, that there are secret destinations that reveal themselves as our path unfolds.”

Evening Prayer – 23 May 2018

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

As we walk this journey of faith with you, Lord

As we seek to discern your way for us

As we seek to be witnesses to your grace, mercy, and love

As we seek to shine your light in the darkness

Encourage us, Lord, when we grow weary

Encourage us, Lord, when we doubt

Encourage us, Lord, when grow frustrated

Encourage us, Equip us, Sustain us

And always, Lord, hear our heartfelt prayer

Dona Nobis Pacem

Grant Us Peace

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…

Photography as a Contemplative Practice – Christine Valters Paintner

“In cultivating photography as a contemplative practice, the camera becomes a tool to develop our ability to see more deeply, clearly, and truly, beneath the surface realities of the world around us and into the sacred presence shimmering in the world.”

Christine Valters Paintner, PhD Eyes of the Heart: Photography as a Christian Contemplative Practice

Heartbeat

Nothing else but the divine heartbeat…

She Sings of Spring

Here, beneath the oak,

I listen to Your Heartbeat.

There is nothing else.
