Yesterday, as I was helping a friend come up with a prayer service for her retreat, I came across this Litany of the Way from the Catholic Household Blessing and Prayers.
As Jesus sought the quiet of the desert, teach us to pray.
As Jesus washed the feet of his disciples, teach us to love.
As Jesus promised paradise to the thief on the cross, teach us to hope.
As Jesus called Peter to walk to him across the water, teach us to believe.
As the child Jesus sat among the elders in the temple, teach us to seek answers.
As Jesus in the garden opened his mind and heart to God’s will, teach us to listen.
As Jesus reflected on the Law and the prophets, teach us to learn.
As Jesus used parables to reveal the mysteries of the Kingdom, teach us to teach
Which of the above lines strikes me the most?
What area(s) in my life do I need to apply the wisdom of this prayer?
