Evening Prayer – 27 May 2021

May 27, 2021

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

In a time when life can be made so complicated

By division and discord

By fear and mistrust

By political and religious differences

At times like this we need your gentle reminder, Lord

Help us to see the divine light around us

Remind us through words such as were shared by Merton

Life is this simple: we are living in a world that is absolutely transparent and the divine is shining through it all the time. — Thomas Merton in his final as Novice Master at the Abbey of Our Lady of Gethsemani

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…
