Prayer by Julia Esquivel

 

You illuminate our darkness
And fill our sadness
With hope.
Because you are stronger than I,
I have let myself be a captive,
And your love burns in my heart.
The thirst for your truth
Has made me a pilgrim
From city to city
Until the day your Word
Is fulfilled,
And we are reborn
In your image and likeness
Captivate me, Lord
Till the last of my days,
Wring out my heart
With your hands,
Of a wise old Indian,
So that I will not forget
Your Justice
Nor cease proclaiming
The urgent need
For humankind
To live in harmony.

 «People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, 
at the huge waves of the seas,
 at the long course of the rivers,
 at the vast compass of the ocean,
 at the circular motion of the stars;
 and yet they pass by themselves without wondering.»
 

St. Augustine
