Reflections and prayers from ‘plus’ magazine

Lord

Sometimes we are guilty of letting our faith become ordinary

            and the way we express it humdrum.

Inspire us with a new enthusiasm

that will set us afire with a longing to do great things for God.

Amen

Sue Kennedy

********************************

How does it feel?  What is it like?

 

It’s like:

A hole with no bottom

A hill with no top

A road with no bend

A night with no end.

It’s as if it’s not happened

It’s as if it’s not true

It’s as if it’s a dream

Yet a numbness seeps through.

 

There’s a feeling of emptiness

A gap to be filled

There’s a feeling of loneliness

That cannot be stilled.

 

They say time’s a healer

How long will it take?

I can’t see it ending

It’s a permanent ache.

Life has no meaning

Yet it has to go on

I find it so hard

I feel so alone.

 

No one will ever know

The depth of my sorrow

I just have to trust

There’ll be better tomorrows.

May God give me strength

To keep on going

To get through this pain

To feel real again.

 

I’ll never get over it

Of that I’m sure

But I’ll give time a chance

And hope for a cure.

Time’s without end

Love is too

I’ll never forget you

I’ll always miss you.

 

Sister Isabel C. Kelly, FMSJ

To worship is to quicken the conscience by the holiness of God,             

 to feed the mind with the truth of God, to open the heart to the love of God, 

 to devote the will to the purposes of God.
