Artwork by Sr Mary Stephen CRSS
From a series of images for prayer, reflection, meditation and
'Listen to my cry for I am in the depths of distress...Bring my soul our
of this prison.' (Psalm 141(142)vs8-9)
'Out of the depths I cry for you, O Lord. Lord, hear my voice.'
Suffering can close in ourselves. Physical pain can make us feel imprisoned by
the aches of our bodies, and mental suffering can trap us in thoughts that go
round and round, getting blacker at every turn.
We have reached the end of our own resources - with our whole being we cry out
to God for help.
Then it is as if we see the light of his presence, like searchlight beams in
the darkness. But these beams shine through the darkness to heal us. Now we
know that we shall find a way through our suffering.
His presence will light up the way. Perhaps, if we are patient, he will teach
us the inner meaning of our pain. Then we might discover it brings a blessing
and we had never dreamed possible. (Sr Petra Boex - A Journey in Prayer DVD))
'Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.'
(From 'The Prophet' by Kahlil Gibran)
