What can we do to counter the harsh oppositions that surround us?
It seems that everywhere around us there is discord and division. Reconciliation begins with us, you and me, starting with transforming our own little corners of the world. Towards that end, this week I offer a prayer written by Brother Roger of Taize. May we all be bearers of reconciliation wherever we are placed.
Lord Christ, at times we are like strangers on this earth, taken aback by all the violence, the harsh oppositions. Like a gentle breeze, you breathe upon us the Spirit of peace. Transfigure the deserts of our doubts, and so prepare us to be bearers of reconciliation wherever you place us, until the day when a hope of peace dawns in our world. Amen.
