We lift our hearts and prayers to all those in Boston:

That the violence and bloodshed will cease,that the doctors will heal and save, that the wounded will find relief, that families will find comfort and hope and the fallen are in peace.

Amen.

A Bit of a Personal Note

It has been a particularly eventful and difficult few weeks in my life, and I’ve really relied on prayer and examen (the Jesuit spiritual self-review) more than usual. I’d like to share two of the blessings that continually find a place in my heart, and whose applications seem infinite through any struggles in life.

May you see God’s light on the path ahead
When the road you walk is dark.
May you always hear,
Even in your hour of sorrow,
The gentle singing of the lark.
When times are hard may hardness
Never turn your heart to stone,
May you always remember
when the shadows fall—
You do not walk alone.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Please keep a close friend of mine, currently suffering from several medical conditions and having recently dealt with a traumatic event in his life, in your prayers.

Thanks, and Godspeed,
Kevin

"Almighty God, to You all hearts are open, all desires known, and from You no secrets are hid: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of Your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love You, and worthily magnify Your holy Name; through Christ our Lord. Amen."

Collect for Purity

Imagine how different the world would be if all our hearts were open! If you pray this, pray this for yourself and your persecutors. We all need to be more open to each other and ourselves.
