The Face We Forgot

 

Lord, how often have we forgotten

that our redemption

was not the act of Jesus Christ alone.

Lord, how often have we forgotten your invitation

to bear witness in your name.

As we meditate on the Way of the Trinity,

allow us to follow your footprints in the sands of time.

Favor us with a whiff of your sweet fragrance,

Spread your divine light that we may glimpse,

even for a moment, the beauty of your face.

Carry our unworthy body closer to your presence,that we may feel the tenderness of your embrace.

Shower us with droplets of your refreshing wisdom,

that we may give glory to your name.

During our dark moments, when doubts linger,

Bless us with your grace of Faith.

Lord, grant us the grace to remember the Way.
