Lenten Reading for Tuesday, March 19, 2013:
Every morning, every evening, let us search our minds for the judgments we still hold, for the unforgivenesses, the places where we do not love. The ego is sly and insidious. It takes discipline and vigilance to do the mental work necessary to purify our hearts. Honesty with ourselves and God, and the willingness to be healed by Him, form the crux of the pilgrim's journey.
I surrender to You my thought of judgment.
Please heal me of my temptation to blame Your
children whom You adore.
Teach me to love as You do.
Teach me to see the reality behind the superficial
masks, the truth in the hearts of all Your children.
May I see the innocence in all humanity, that I
may see the world of Your creation, the world anew,
the world that shall be.
I relinquish my miscreations, I surrender my belief in guilt.
May all God's children be innocent in my eyes,
for they are all my brothers.
May I see this that the world might heal.
Dear God, Give me new eyes, Your eyes.
