Evening Prayer – 2 April 2017

April 2, 2017

The sun has set and the Vesper lights flicker and glow

The crosses on the wall are all so intricate and artistic in design

Yet, Lord, the cross you hung on was an implement of torture

A sadistic and cruel device meant to prolong the agony and suffering of death

As we enter the final week of Lent, Lord, help us to understand

Help us to comprehend both the depth of your love and the depth of your suffering

You suffered, Lord, on our behalf

Your love overcame the darkness of this world

Your love overcame the hatred of this world

How difficult it must have been to drink from that cup

How difficult it must have been to see the ones you loved desert you

Yet, you forgave each one

Lord, may that same forgiveness and peace be present today in this world of darkness

Lord, may that same peace transform the hatred and divisiveness

Lord, in your mercy, hear this prayer

Dona Nobis Pacem et in Terra

Grant Us Peace on Earth

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…
