Teilhard prayer

“Now that I have found the joy of utilizing all forms of growth to make you, or to let you grow in me, grant that I may willingly consent to this last phase of communion in the course of which I shall possess you by diminishing in you…

            When the signs of age begin to mark my body (and still more when they touch my mind): when the ill that is to diminish me or carry me off strikes from without or is born within me, when the painful moment comes in which I suddenly awaken to the fact that I am ill or growing old; and above all at that last moment when I feel I am losing hold of myself and am absolutely passive within the hands of the great unknown forces that have formed me: in all those dark moments, O God, grant that I may understand that it is you (provided only my faith is strong enough) who are painfully parting the fibers of my being in order to penetrate to the very marrow of my substance and bear me away within yourself.”
- Teilhard de Chardin

    its totally destroyed-

    Happy blessings ____________________

    1. nice 2 cents, bob. I especially like "St. Virus".

      You could be right about mother earth.

      - seems to me that humankind's nonsense
      is part of the bigger plan -

      nobody & nothing to blame here.
      (all will be well)

      more blessings -
