WE ACHE FOR MERCY

LENT 2022

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted

and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

(Psalm 34: 18)

I am in the House of Mercy,

and my heart is a place of Prayer.

(Rumi)

If I raise my eyes to the hills, from where will my help come?

My help comes from Adonai, the maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip —your guardian is not asleep.

(Psalm 121: 1-3)

“Sometimes the most important thing

in a whole day is the rest

we take between two deep breaths,

or the turning inwards in prayer

for five short minutes.”

(Etty Hillesum, Dutch Jewish non-conformist)

God came to my house and asked for charity.

And I fell to my knees and cried,

“Beloved,

what may I give?”

“Just love,” He said.

“Just love.”

(Francis of Assisi)

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer.

Always remember, you have within you

the strength, the patience, and the passion

to reach for the stars to change the world.”

(Harriet Tubman, Abolitionist and Liberator)

May God in His mercy lead us through these times;

but above all, may He lead us to Himself.

(Dietrich Bonnhoeffer, German Pastor, Theologian and Resistor)

The imperialist ideology of force,

from whatever side it comes,

must be shattered for all time.

(Sophie Magdalena Scholl, German Resistance)

What didn’t you do, to bury me…

But you forgot that I was a seed.

(Dinos Christianopoulos)
