grant me the maturity to embrace the mystery
the faith to receive the irreconcilable
the strength to live with the paradox
the wisdom to walk with unknowing to be fully human
to relinquish the ego that needs to know, to understand,
that seeks to be god.
Help me to walk in the way of your kingdom
where the earthly values are inverted ~ the poor became rich, the meek inherit,
the humble are raised up, and death equals life~
So empower me by your spirit to live the way of the cross.
