The Daily Prayer

In 1991, the Women in Black began their regular Wednesday vigil against war in Belgrade, Serbia.
English poet and cleric John Donne wrote, “There we leave you in that blessed dependency, to hang upon him that hangs upon the cross, there bathe in his tears, there suck at his wounds, and lie down in peace in his grave, till he vouchsafe you a resurrection, and an ascension into that Kingdom, which he has purchased for you with the inestimable price of his incorruptible blood.”
Jesus, keep us near your cross, and reveal to us your glory. Amen.
