All Souls Prayer from Mike Corso
In the Divine Presence.
We are inspired by those who lived before us, those ancient ones who have lived here in faith and opened up and gave away Divine love to all those who needed it.
May we continue here as a constant presence for those who travel through life, a community of welcome that cares for all, believing in what is still yet to be.
May we discern the teachings of Jesus as those before us have discerned his teachings, guided by its call and feeding on its promise of life and hope and belonging.
May we hear the word: a comforting word in its familiar sound, yet a disturbing word in what it speaks anew and longs for us to become.
May we hold within the faith of our forebears, those who chose to meet the Divine here in this faith.
May we be moved by that grace into all the places that make up our community,
sharing what you have given abundantly like an ever-flowing stream.
May we be called from our past, through the voices of our ancestors, in the songs they have sung and the prayers they have spoken that have shaped peace within this community,
And may we join our voice with their voice, in the one great song of love that will be lived and celebrated yet, throughout this community.
We ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen
We remember those who have gone before us in Sophia and Voice of the Faithful. All the good they have done will live on in our lives!
