Saturday 3rd Easter
A Pilgrim's Daily Prayer
Called through the Word to the everlasting journey in the Spirit
from nothingness to union with the One who is the Beginning and the End
Masolino da Panicale: The Raising of Tabitha (detail)
Father, because of the sin of the world and our own personal selfishness and sin, death often seems like the undoing of human life. Father, beginning from the womb, when, through the Word, you offer us life, even a share in your own divine life in the Spirit, you continue to call us to constant growth without end. Human life is an everlasting journey which does not end in death but only passes through death to further, perpetual growth in you.
