Amidst the Pain and Disfigurement

Amidst the Pain and Disfigurement

From Tobi Kahn's "Sky and Water" series.

A prayer

 

That you have made us in the image

     of your own mystery

thanks be to you, oh God.

That in the soul of every human being

there are depths beyond naming

and heights greater than knowing

thanks be to you.

 

Grant us the grace of love this day

that amidst the pain and disfigurement of life

that amidst the pain and disfigurement of our own life

we may know the richness that lies buried

     in the human soul.

 

From John Philip Newell's Sounds of the Eternal
