Evening Prayer and Reflection – 4 June 2020

June 4, 2020
Tonight’s Full Moon

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

It was a day of meetings and worship preparation

It was a time for a wonderful evening with dear friends

It was also a time for reflection

Thirty-one years ago today my son came into this world

A wonderful gift indeed

As I watched the Full Moon rise over the mountain

I was overcome by a sense of wonder

When I look into the night sky I am reminded of God’s presence, even in the darkness.

These words from Thomas Merton in Entering the Silence: The Journals of Thomas Merton-Volume Two (1941-1952) struck a chord within me:

Teach me to be content with Your grace that comes to me in darkness and that works things I cannot see. Teach me to be happy that I can depend on You.

Now as my eyelids grow heavy

I lift this humble prayer to you

Dona Nobis Pacem

Grant Us Peace

A wee prayer and reflection from your Padre…
