LOCKDOWN-2: DAY 13

SHAPELY SPIRITUALITY - PATTERNS OF PRAYER IN THE PANDEMIC



Christ, be our fundamental food, bread for our souls.

Broken you were, because broken we are.

Graces multiply like loaves and fishes.

You lavish endless love on us

when you come to us;

and make us one,

when you are

our very

food.



The Prayer of the Chalice


Father, to Thee I raise my whole being, – a vessel emptied of self. Accept, Lord, this my emptiness, and so fill me with Thyself – Thy Light, Thy Love, Thy Life – that these Thy precious Gifts may radiate through me and over- flow the chalice of my heart into the hearts of all with whom I come in contact this day revealing unto them the beauty of Thy Joy and Whole- ness and the serenity of Thy Peace which nothing can destroy.




TODAY: HALF-FULL OR HALF-EMPTY?


Today was the absolutely worst day ever

And don't try to convince me that

There's something good in every day

Because, when you take a closer look,

This world is a pretty evil place.

Even if

Some goodness does shine through once in a while

Satisfaction and happiness don't last.

And it's not true that

It's all in the mind and heart

Because

True happiness can be obtained

Only if one’s surroundings are good

It's not true that good exists

I'm sure you can agree that

The reality

Creates

My attitude

It's all beyond my control

And you'll never in a million years hear me say that

Today was a good day


Now read this from the bottom to the top


Written by Chanie Gorkin from Brooklyn; asking the question:

"Is your glass half-full or half-empty?" Look for

the good in all things, and you create

positive energy all around.

It all depends on

how you look

at it.
