A Task (Day 40 of A Simple Lent) | Saturday
by Czeslaw Milosz
In fear and trembling, I think I would fulfill my life
Only if I brought myself to make a public confession
Revealing a sham, my own and of my epoch:
We were permitted to shriek in the tongue of dwarfs and demons
But pure and generous words were forbidden
Under so stiff a penalty that whoever dared to pronounce one
Considered himself as a lost man.
[For further reflection, read last year’s meditation for Saturday of Holy Week!]
Daily Office Readings
- Psalm 88
- Lamentations 3:37-58
- Hebrews 4:1-16 (for use in the morning)
- Romans 8:1-11 (for use in the evening)
Or visit the alternative Daily Office I often use.
This week’s homework is to simply be present in prayer, giving this week to GOD.
[No worksheet this week!]
