Prayer by Jonathan Montaldo


You enjoin me to give up everything to follow you.

You teach me that the price of genuine freedom

is to become poor and hungry for the kingdom of heaven.

Freedom for your disciples is freedom

to do justice and liberate our neighbors,

as we liberate ourselves,

from whatever keeps us fettered in ignorance

of your command to love our neighbors as ourselves.
