Evening Prayer – 26 February 2020

February 26, 2020

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

On this Ash Wednesday a time for reflection

A time to consider and plan mission support

A time to prepare for worship

A time to worship and reflect together

A time to reflect on God’s love and mercy

A time to consider these words of Thomas Merton

Nevertheless, the liturgy of Ash Wednesday is not focused on the sinfulness of the penitent but on the mercy of God… The God of Ash Wednesday is like a calm sea of mercy. And in <God> there is no anger. (Seasons of Celebration: Meditations on the Cycle of Liturgical Feasts, p. 96-97)

Now as my eyelids grow heavy

I lift this humble prayer to you

Dona Nobis Pacem

Grant Us Peace

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…
