Litany for the Second Scrutiny: March 30, 2014

Response: Christ in me, arise

 

The Second Scrutiny: The Fourth Sunday of Lent, March 30, 2014

 

 

From the blurred vision of indifference to strangers…

From the blurred vision of impatience to our children…

From the blurred vision of manipulation in our relationships…

From the blurred vision of overt pride and selfish attitudes…

 

From the blurred vision of self-centered power and blatant control…

From the blurred vision of sexism and racism…

From the blurred vision of sarcasm and mockery…

From the blurred vision of food addiction and self-hatred…

 

From the blurred vision of bigotry and prejudice…

From the blurred vision of past mistakes and uncertain futures…

From the blurred vision of put-downs and outbursts…

From the blurred vision of poor body image and negative choices…

 

From the blurred vision of always needing to judge other people…

From the blurred vision of compromising our lives and talents…

From the blurred vision of devaluing ourselves…

From the blurred vision of stereotyping other people…

 

From the blurred vision of not taking risks…

From the blurred vision of keeping our eyes cast down in shame…

From the blurred vision of not taking a stand and not living the gospel…

From the blurred vision of not seeing miracles and beauty…

 

 

And from all evil…

And from all evil…

And from all evil…

  1. Emily,

    Here’s another missive from Fr. Ron (now in Colarado). We miss him enough to consider visiting him one summer.
