Prayer to ask for humility
You lived in the century of pride.
and thou wast humble.
You passed between us at the time.
of riches dreamed, judged and worshiped,
and you remained poor.
together with you no one heard the Voice,
and you spoke with God.
Near you no one saw the Light,
and thou art God.
while we ran anxiously,
You were on your knees.
and walked the Love of God nailed to a wood,
wounded in hands, feet and heart
Help us to weep before the cross,
help us to believe in the face of love,
help us to feel the Mass as the cry of God,
help us to seek forgiveness with the embrace of peace,
help us to be Christians with the wounds
who shed the blood of faithful and silent charity,
like the wounds of God!
