Living in Peace

Come, Spirit,
make me docile to your voice.
Help me debate angels.
Let your will be done in me
even if it means
misunderstanding,
rejection,
scandal.
Give me wisdom to find you
in the irrational:
heavens gone awry,
astrologers’ predictions.
Give me such hospitality of heart
that songs in the night,
family,
foreign seers,
poor shepherds, and animals
find a home in my presence.

—Benedictine Sisters
