Prayer by Jonathan Montaldo


I shall understand your sacred mission to the world

only by acknowledging my poverty,

my imprisonment in a daily round of desires for empty things,

my habitual blindness to who I am

and who you truly are for me.

Help me understand your work in me.

You have come to liberate me just as I am.

You love me just as I am.

You will heal me just as I am.

Today I know my sins and renounce them.

I affirm my will to follow your way

and be more truly your disciple.
