HOLY LAND - Please find attached the prayer prepared this week by the Community of the Silent Workers of the Cross - Mater Misericordiae Home in Jerusalem.
Let us pray:
“Make us, Lord, wise initiators of journeys we share with others, without excluding latecomers; active in serving without giving rise to passive recipients, solicitous for doing good without considering those who are “differently able”.
Let us pray to become better persons:
to open our hearts even when doors remain closed,
not to erect barriers when only a few steps of a ladder separate us.
Having become disciples, even from the painful experiences we suffered,
we want to learn from the marginalized of our society,
to bring back to the centre the yearnings for life.”
The Religious Families of the Holy Land, in collaboration with the Pastoral Office of the Latin Patriarchate, share a weekly prayer with the faithful that tackles a pertinent theme. The intention can be included in the prayer of the faithful (also in Vespers or Lauds).
