READING! “My” for Wednesday, August 5th

Happy Hump Day!

As I first mentioned last week, I’m now starting each day’s “My” post with a quote from Franciscan Father Richard Rohr’s daily email that I receive from his Center For Action and Contemplation.

As I start my day with this rich wisdom and share it with you, I hope it helps your day to be the best it can be!

Today, Fr. Richard features the words of Meister Eckhart and how he understood the potential for the soul’s communion with God:

When I preach, I am accustomed to talk about detachment, saying that we should become free of ourselves and of all things.

Secondly, I say that we should be in-formed back into the simple goodness, which is God.

Thirdly, I say that we should be mindful of the great nobility which God has given the soul in order that we should become wonderfully united with [God].

Fourthly, I speak of the purity of the divine nature, and of the radiance within it which is ineffable. God is a word: an unspoken word.

Father Richard’s “Prayer For Our Community” this week:

O Great Love, thank you for living and loving in us and through us.

May all that we do flow from our deep connection with you and all beings.

Help us become a community that vulnerably shares each other’s burdens and the weight of glory.

Listen to our hearts’ longings for the healing of our world. [Please add your own intentions.] . . .

Knowing you are hearing us better than we are speaking, we offer these prayers in all the holy names of God, amen.
