Retreat Reflection

A ‘Retreat’ reflection with words from Arundhati Roy, Cornel West, Mahmoud Darwish and Carlos Mejía Godoy.

Retreat Reflection

Retreat Reflection
From our book, Seeds Of Hope

Another world is not only possible, she is on her way
On a quiet day I can hear her breathing

We have been shown what is good
May we act justly, love mercy and walk humbly

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God
Have mercy upon me a sinner
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God
Have mercy on me
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God
Have mercy

May we never forget
Justice is how love looks in public
Peace is the apology of the strong to the weak
Faith is being sure of what we hope for

You are the God of the poor, the human and simple God
The God that sweats in the street
The God with the weathered face
That is why I speak to you, like my people speak to you
Because you are the labourer God, the worker Christ

This day may we
Recognise you in the people we meet
Listen deeply, speak truth with love and courage
Bring forgiveness, hope and wholeness

May we be blessed with:
A lightness in our spirit
A calmness in our soul
A heart for justice
A peace that forgives
And the knowledge that all will be well

Our thanks to:
Arundhati Roy, Cornel West, Mahmoud Darwish and Carlos Mejía Godoy.
