Evening Reflection and Prayer – 19 April 2021

April 19, 2021

God cannot be found by weighing the present against the future or the past, but only by sinking into the heart of the present as it is.

As I contemplate Sister Moon’s journey across the sky, I can’t help but think of these words of Thomas Merton from his journal.**

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

It has been a long but fruitful day

I am thankful for impromptu pastoral visits

I am thankful for time to reflect and finish the final paper for class

I am thankful for moments to simply Be Still

I am thankful for snuggle time with my sweetheart and our puppy

I am thankful for this present moment

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…

**Entering the Silence as found on page 83 of Thomas Merton: A Book of Hours
