Discernment Happens

Labberton-optimized-1Discernment happens in community when you are together in agreement and disagreement.

 

- It happens when you sit together in careful listening.

- It happens when you sit together with no timeline that's driving a certain set of decisions.

- It happens when you gather when there's not a sense that you're there for the sake of advocacy but for the sake of compassion and mercy.

- It happens when you're patiently waiting on God to be revealing. It happens out of traditions that understand the significance of silence.

A Prayer of Discernment

Grant me, O Lord, to see everything now with new eyes,

to discern and test the spirits that help me read the signs of the times,

to relish the things that are yours,

and to communicate them to others.

Give me the clarity of understanding that you gave
Ignatius.

--Pedro Arrupe, SJ

Prayer

He Taught Us to Pray

man-praying-to-godEnglish

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors;
and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen

 

Spanish

Padre Nuestro, que estás en los cielos,
santificado sea tu nombre.
Venga a nosotros tu reino,
hágase tu voluntad
así en la tierra como en el cielo.
Danos hoy nuestro pan de cada día
y perdónanos nuestras deudas,
así como nosotros perdonamos a nuestros deudores.
No nos dejes caer en tentación, mas líbranos del mal.
Porque tuyo es el reino, el poder y la gloria, por los siglos
de los siglos. Amen
