PRAYER

jesus

 

I wandered into a small 18th Century church in Guanajuato recently, and came across the following prayer, which I think I’d seen in other Mexican churches, but hadn’t really stopped to fully absorb:

prayer

 

It says, in part:

Jesus, you are our peace,

look at our nation damaged by

violence,

and scattered by fear and

insecurity.

Comfort the pain of those who

suffer.

Give wisdom to the decisions of

those who govern us.

Touch the heart of those who

forgot that we are brothers,

and provoke suffering and death…
