Morning Offering: 05. 28. 22

Today’s Reflection: God of Peace,
You told us very clearly:
Do not let your hearts be troubled
And do not let them be afraid.
But mine is. Both troubled and afraid.
Because my world, our world, isn’t easy.
And I want to be honest about that with you
And with my brothers and sisters, my traveling companions.
But help me to realize that this trouble and fear is not the whole story,
Because you promise, too, a nearness, a closeness,
A coming to make your home with me that brings me,
In my closer moments,
The tremendous hope of unspeakable peace.
Help me to dwell there with you,
My troubled and fearful heart and all,
Ready for your Spirit’s stirrings of peace.
Amen. — Fr. Garrett Gundlach, SJ.

Morning Offering: 09. 09. 20

Today’s Reflection: The earth is my altar; the sea is my holy water;
The air and sun what give me life.
Lord, I celebrate this home each day,
and I give you thanks for what you have created. — Christopher De Vinck, in The Center Will Hold, An Almanac of Hope, Prayer and Wisdom for Hard Times.
