A Prayer of Hope & Homecoming

by Sister Judith Bloxham, OSB

You know Lord, that we live our lives in the now, not yet;

     That we live deep down within the tangle of our days and solitary lives.

As we seek to live and love and pray, help us, Lord,

     to nurture 'coming home' within our hearts. 

Oh God, our Father, you are our home - a glance held within our heart -

     transfigured into Christ within our space-bound lives and time.

We look to You, our Home, and find - a shadowed memory in the Spirit -

     the face of Jesus, so lovely, in those we meet each day.
