Dear Lord,

When the signs of age begins 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)
unnamed (10)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


Feeling thy presence

Feeling thy grace

Feeling thy radiance

You are  my source of faith and strength

You are my path and destination

And I am always connected to you

Nothing of me and everything of You

Lead me higher …..

Lead me Deeper ….

Lead me Beyond ….

Lead me to You .
