Evening Prayer – 22 May 2021

May 22, 2021

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

Thank you for a day of reflection

Thank you for this time with my sweetheart and our puppy

Thank you for the opportunity to Be Still

Thank you for the beauty of Sister Moon tonight

Thomas Merton shared these words about darkness and life which bring comfort this night:

And it is in this darkness, when there is nothing left in us that can please or comfort our own minds, when we seem to be useless and worthy of all contempt, when we seem to have failed, when we seem to be destroyed and devoured, it is then that the deep and secret selfishness that is too close to us for us to identify is stripped away from our souls. It is in this darkness that we find liberty. It is in this abandonment that we are made strong. This is the night which empties us and makes us pure. — New Seeds of Contemplation

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…
