Prayer Offered for August 28, 2023

Spirit of God, who breathes in us, the poet Danna Faulds reminds us that it only takes a reminder to breathe, a moment to be still, and just like that, something in us settles, softens, makes space for imperfection.

The harsh voice of judgment drops to a whisper and we remember again that life is not a relay race; that we will all cross the finish line; that waking up to life is what we were born for.

As many times as we forget, as we catch ourselves charging forward without even knowing where we’re going, that many times we can make the choice to stop, to breathe, and be and walk slowly into the mystery.—AMEN.

Sr. Michelle Gorman, RSM
