Lent 2015: Second Scrutiny Litany from March 15

 

The Second Scrutiny: (Cycle B) The Fourth Sunday of Lent, March 15, 2014

Response: Christ in me, arise 

From the darkness of indifference to strangers…

From the darkness of impatience to our children…

From the darkness of manipulation in our relationships…

From the darkness of overt pride and selfish attitudes…

 

From the darkness of self-centered power and blatant control…

From the darkness of sexism and racism…

From the darkness of sarcasm and mockery…

From the darkness of food addiction and self-hatred…

 

From the darkness of bigotry and prejudice…

From the darkness of past mistakes and uncertain futures…

From the darkness of put-downs and outbursts…

From the darkness of poor body image and negative choices…

 

From the darkness of always needing to judge other people…

From the darkness of compromising our lives and talents…

From the darkness of devaluing ourselves…

From the darkness of stereotyping other people…

 

From the darkness of not taking risks…

From the darkness of keeping our eyes cast down in shame…

From the darkness of wicked things and not living the gospel…

From the darkness of not seeing miracles and beauty…

 

 

And from all evil…

And from all evil…

And from all evil…

  1. “Christ in me, arise, and dispel all the darkness,
    Christ in me arise, with your power and your strength
    Christ in me, pour out your compassion and healing,
    Christ in me, arise, and I shall rise with you.”
    I just learned this hymn recently and it sure came to mind as I prayed this powerful litany. Thanks Ron! -Danny Z-man
