YOU ARE WITH US
We know, holy compassionate Mystery,
that your involvement in the evolutionary process is total,
and so, even in the random and chance events
that often bring about so much human pain,
you do not stand aside but rather are with us in the storm,
urging quietly that we do not lose heart, that all will be well,
urging that we trust you and your unfolding plan of love and creativity,
a system larger and more ambitious
than we can begin to imagine
but in which we-in our surrender -- are a vital part.
Be with us in our faithful energies
as well as in our devout submission.
