I keep a prayer list on my desk. A random sampling:
Fr. P. Lamb
CB and sister, upcoming trial
Lucy, Pakistan hospice
Ross and Allen
Christine L.s father-in-law, close to 100% dementia
Sr. Mary Fidelis
H, 12-year-old, Guelph, cancer
Patti and Pam
Karin E., mother
Lizzie–London, 8-day silent retreat
Lydia, Jean P’s friend, physical problem
BP: fidelity to vows.
I’ve never met most of the people who read and/or comment on my blog. The relationships aren’t “enfleshed.”
Prayer is a way of enfleshing them.
You can’t argue about how well you’re living out the teachings of Christ. You can only be crucified by them.
