Closing Prayer

O, wild man of God,
share with me the secret
of the blazing fire
hidden just beneath the surface
of your calm heart.
Recite to me
your passionate love poetry,
the language of my own yearning.
Remind me
that only by letting go of all hope
can I ever come to receive
the fullness of God's love:

a tender filling
of every fiber
of my broken-open soul.

Amen

- Mirabai Starr Saint John of the Cross
