May the whole creation,

humanity especially

fall into silent beholding,

letting go

of the un-necessary chatter and interpretations

and wait in humility

for the message of mercy

to disrobe humanity

of its self-preoccupations.

May healing come

in and through our silent beholding

of Your compassion.



Quote of St. Isaac of Nineveh is taken from Anna Wierzbicka, What Did Jesus Mean: Explaining the Sermon on the Mount and the Parables in Simple and Universal Human Concepts (Oxford University Press, NY: 2001).
