A Prayer for Reconciliation

October 6, 2019

Where there is separation
there is pain.
And where there is pain
there is story.
And where there is story
there is understanding
and misunderstanding
and not listening.
May we — separated peoples, estranged strangers,
unfriended families, divided communities —
turn toward each other,
and turn toward our stories,
with understanding
and listening,
with argument and acceptance,
with challenge, change
and consolation.
Because if God is to be found,
God will be found
in the space

This prayer is out of the Correymeela community in Northern Ireland and is written by Padraig O Tauma.
