Sacred Writing
Brother Roger of Taize: “Do not close yourself. Live the little bit of gospel you have grasped.”
(A Universal Heart: The Life and Vision of Brother Roger of Taize, Kathryn Spink, p. 26)

What is one blessing you have experienced this week?

May we become empty
Of the things that burden us,
Of the past events that preoccupy our attention,
Of the anxieties we harbor about the future.
And may God’s spirit fill us with
A sense of awe and wonder,
A feeling of love and peace,
And a willingness to express courage and commitment in our lives.
May it be so….
