Evening Reflection and Prayer 22 April 2021

Thomas Merton wrote the following about Contemplation and transcultural dialogue… The finally integrated man is a peacemaker, and that is why there is such a desperate need for our leaders to become such men of insight. (Contemplation in a World of Action, 226)

In a world of fractures and division, the need for leaders who are both contemplative and truly open to active listening and dialogue is critical. Aren’t we all called to be such leaders? This isn’t the exclusive realm of pastors and religious leaders. This is God’s call to all of Her creation.

This is rich food for thought, prayer, and discernment.

Now, as I consider the call to be that peacemaker, I lift this prayer to God.

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

It has been a long and varied day of ministry

Meetings, reflection, prayer, and struggles

Finding ways to Be Still and listen for the Spirit’s whisper

Finally finding some rest with my sweetheart and our puppy

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…
