O God of Mercy, receive our longing in your ancient fidelity. Help us receive the stranger. Open a door to people wearied by pain, self-loathing and inner struggle. Give us a towel to wash the blistering feet of people who journey through addictions, homelessness and domestic violence. Help us bend down to kiss the feet of people who come home to you, who bring us reconciliation and hope. Give us a hunger this day for your saving presence in the Eucharist we celebrate this evening. As we begin the Triduum, open our hearts to you in love and give us peace in our violent hearts. Amen
