Reflection – Discovering One’s Own Riches

I lived on the shady side of the road
and watched my neighbours’ gardens across the way
revelling in the sunshine.
I felt I was poor
and from door to door went in my hungry.
The more they gave me from their careless
abundance
the more I became aware of my beggar’s bowl.
Till one morning I awoke from my sleep
at the sudden opening of my door
and you came and asked for alms.
In despair I broke open the lid of my chest
and was startled into finding my own wealth.

Reflection – Sheep without a Shepherd

Lord, look upon us and take pity on us,
for at times we too are like sheep.
Save us from a blind following of the herd.
Help us to listen to your voice,
to trust you and to follow you,
even if it means leaving the crowd
and walking a lonely path.
Lead us from fear to trust, from error to truth,
from hate to love, from war to peace,
from despair to hope, and from death to life. Amen.
