Unknown amongst us

“Like a root out of dry ground . . .

He had no majesty to attract us to Him.”

 

Unknown you walk amongst us.

Open

Our eyes to see You in the stranger

Our ears to hear you through the crying

Our hands to touch You in the soiled ones

Our voices to speak for those without voices.

 

As we wait for Your coming.

 

Improvised prayer from Wednesday evening Advent prayer in The Divine Office.
