Prayer by Jonathan Montaldo


The ears of my heart are opened to hear your commands.

Teach me your ways.

Teach me to be a disciple of Jesus

by becoming a sign of mercy to my neighbors.

Help me to accept their weaknesses as I accept my own.

Teach me to understand that we are all sinners,

groping our way toward you in a desert of forces arranged against us.

Let nothing in me separate myself from my neighbors.

There is one path toward you,

that of mercy,

and we must all be united and walk it.
