the song, sunday

Sunday, February 1

Come to Stillness: Take a few minutes to allow your mind and heart to be still before God.
Opening Prayer: O Lord, as we spend time with you and your Word this day, let us hear the words of your Ancient Song; and let us listen closely for the Song of God that rises in our hearts.  In Christ.  Amen.

Scripture Reading for the Day: Song of Songs 2:10-13

Reading for Reflection:
When you feel invited to remain in silence at Our Lord's feet like Magdalen just looking at Him with your heart without saying anything, don't cast about for any thoughts or reasonings, but just remain in loving adoration. Follow the whisperings of the Holy Ghost. If He invites you to beg, beg; if to be silent, remain silent; if to show your misery to God, just do so. Let Him play on the fibers of your heart like a harpist, and draw forth the melody He wishes for the Divine Spouse. (Union with God by Dom Marmion)

Reflection and Listening: silent and written

Prayer: for the church, for others, for myself    
Closing Prayer: Everything in all of creation, O Lord, is a unique song of yours.  And when we sing our song—that song that is buried deeply within each of us—we are indeed being who we were made to be.  We are in true harmony (shalom) with the voice of our Maker.  Help us to sing our song (Your song) clearly and fully this day.  In the name of Jesus.  Amen.
