Prayer by Mr. Stephen Lorys, Science Department
Two possible worlds:
Once upon a time, someone was hurt, lonely, and in despair. And everyone else was so busy putting themselves first, that no one cared enough to do anything about it. The End.
Once upon a time, someone was hurt, lonely, and in despair. So Jesus came to Earth to show us how to fix that by taking care of each other. And while the world didn’t live happily ever after then, at least there was a way forward to less hurt, loneliness, and despair; so that maybe one day we COULD live happily ever after. The End.
Tell me which of these worlds you would rather be living in. Better yet, show me.
We pray with St Theresa of Avila:
Christ has no body but yours,
No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which he looks
Compassion on this world,
Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good,
Yours are the hands, with which he blesses all the world.
Mary, Sedes Sapientiae, pray for us.
