Thursday 11th Ord I
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
Gaston Phébus : Gaston Phébus en prière
Father, there is so much that you speak through the Word to everyone in every time and place that has taken us so long to learn. It is only in the Word, now made flesh in Jesus, that we have realized that, through him, you are so close to us. It is not necessary, as Moses thought, to climb the holy mountain alone to talk to you, or to go apart into the Tent of the Presence, or for the priest to enter the Holy of Holies of the Temple. No, you are with us through the Word always and everywhere. You even share your life with us in the Holy Spirit as we accept you in faith. How wonderful, Father, that each of us is empowered to call your name, not in search of you, but in response to your universal presence.
