As Jesus approached Jericho a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging, and hearing a crowd going by, he inquired what was happening. They told him, “Jesus of Nazareth is passing by,” He shouted, “Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me.” …Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?” He replied, “Lord, please, let me see.” 

Response: Lord, please, let me see…

Your peace in the center of violence…

Your love in the midst of my fear…

Your presence in the center of chaos…

Your consolation among the people of Paris…

Your path on the streets of Colorado Springs and every city…

Your hope in the center of grief…

Your call for peace…

Your presence of healing…

Your challenge to respect all people…

Your fidelity in my inability to respect life…

Your promise that death to self brings new life…

Your goodness overriding destruction…

Your life in my anger…

Your truth bringing me real freedom…

Your protection satisfying my loneliness…

Your acceptance calming my revenge…

Your voice inviting me to praise…

Your face forever and ever…

Amen
