Monday Meditation

Transcendent God,
lover of our souls:
Help us recognize that
you are the mysterious essence of our being.

You come among us
in unexpected ways.
You make yourself known
not through kings,
but through carpenters.
You enter our world
not on the machines of war,
but on the wings of a dove.

You enter our city
on a donkey,
through the intimate family door,
and you come only to love us.

We strive to follow
in the way of the Master, Jesus the Christ.
Help us recognize you in our midst
by recognizing you in ourselves,
and in every person we ever meet.

In this way,
may we all become
the transcendent examples of compassion
exemplified by Jesus,
entering through the intimate door
to each other’s souls.
