Pondering Valentine's Day & Lent… from Sr. Michaeline

 

Valentine's Day with Lent may be unusual, but perhaps also very meaningful when one's heart is yearning for conversion.  Joyce Rupp's, poem reminds me I am longing to soften my heart.

 

VALENTINE'S DAY: A LITANY OF HEARTS

 

Let us pray this Valentine's Day that

broken hearts be mended

young hearts stay wonder-filled

old hearts discover their wisdom

embittered hearts let go of hurt

compassionate hearts find strength

big hearts know their wealth

betrayed hearts recover trust

soft hearts not be wounded

hardened hearts begin to soften

sensitive hearts be vigilant

happy hearts announce their joy

courageous keep risking

passionate hearts ten the flames

arrogant hearts learn humility

sympathetic hearts benefit others

determined hearts lessen their grip

jealous hearts accept what they have

lost hearts find their way home

loving hearts reach out to others

generous hearts receive in return

fearful hearts turn towards trust

empty hearts befriend loneliness

tepid hearts stretch into action

faithful hearts remain steadfast.

 

Kindhearted Holy One, you gather all these hearts into your one great love. Thank you for reaching our heart through the hearts of others.

The genuine love of each person reflects your diving affection.  Keep us aware, when we hesitate or question our ability to share our love with another, that you dwell within our hearts.  Amen
