Morning Prayer 091020


“Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. . . . If, in this life only, we have hope in Christ, we are of all people the most miserable. Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard the things which God hath prepared for those who love him.” What samples of God’s love in Creation all around us! Even in the city, the changing sky, the trees, frail though they may be, which prisoners grow on Riker’s Island, to be planted around the city, bear witness. People — all humankind, in some way. “In the beginning God created heaven and earth.” Looking out over the bay, the gulls, the “paths in the sea,” the tiny ripples stirring a patch of water here and there, the reflections of clouds on the surface — how beautiful it all is.

Alone all day. A sudden storm in the night. Vast, dark clouds and a glaring lightning flash with thunder. No rain. Reading Dr. Zhivago a second time.”

Dorothy Day
