Prayer by Jonathan Montaldo


Let me see your face in every face I meet.

Let me learn the intimate connection between love of you

and compassion for all you have given me

to be at one within their struggles and real suffering.

Let me damp down my need to take

and let my heart fill with the necessity to give,

if I am to be your disciple.
