Evening Prayer – 21 December 2017

December 21, 2017

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

The shortest day of the year

The longest night has begun

The Winter Solstice is upon us

In addition, a time to pray, reflect, remember

Our Blue Christmas service tonight was a blessing

Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted

Mourning the loss of a loved one

Mourning the loss of a career

Mourning the loss of independence

Surrounded by travelers on this road

We sang…

We Prayed…

We lit candles…

We held each other closely…

For me there were so many names to call forth

Parishioners, Co-Workers, Friends, Loved Ones…

Walking through the Valley of the Shadows with Mom

Walking with Denise and Dad and Alec

Tonight I was reminded that the Padre needs time

Time to mourn, time to recharge, time to simply be

So on this night I pray as I always do

Dona Nobis Pacem

Grant Us Peace

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…

From → Photography, Prayer
