     A Pilgrim Liturgy

    Reconciliation 

    Lord God, bring us together as one,

    reconciled with you and reconciled with each other.

    You made us in your likeness,

    you gave us your Son, Jesus Christ.

    He has given us forgiveness from sin.

    Lord God, bring us together as one,

    different in culture, but given new life in Jesus Christ,

    together as your body, your Church, your people.

    Lord God, bring us together as one,

    reconciled, healed, forgiven,

    sharing you with others as you have called us to do. 

    In Jesus Christ, let us be together as one. Amen.

  • Thomas Merton

    MY LORD GOD, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it. Therefore will I trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.

     From "Through the Year with Thomas Merton"
