Pray With Us

Dear Friends,

With the feast of the Trinity this weekend liturgically we move once again into what is called ‘ordinary time’!  Before we do that, we are sending you a few reflections that focus on each of the three ‘persons’ of the Trinity – a mystery, for sure, but we hope there is something here that you can relate to.

Our blessing this week is one from Sacred Weave, ‘Let the Peace …’. which is also Trinitarian:

Let the peace of the Father

be with you this night.

The Son keep you safe,

and the Holy Spirit guide you in your sleep:

in your sleep, in your sleep.


We are praying it for all of you.

With love & prayer for you all



Knowing the Blessing of the Trinity    

Loving Mother,

who with perfect timing

knows when to push; to nudge; to shove;

and when to wait,

even though panting for change.

Grant us the courage to name you;

and the grace of your timing.

Sister Christ,

who feeds us with warm breast milk

when the heavenly feast is too rich a fare;

and in whose death our own wounds find resurrection.

Teach us also to play with you,

that we may know the delight

of your particular freedom.

Lady Wisdom,

who nurtures and wills our growing.

Lead us in your wild dance,

that we may tread the unfamiliar paths

singing gladly;

and find fulfillment for the dreams

that fit your knowing of us.

Chris Polhill

God be the road on which you travel:

he the mountains

on which you are tested and challenged

he the wells

at which you find healing and peace.

Christ be the light by which you travel:

he the vision

which informs & enlarges you

he the lodestar

shining in your darkest nights.

The Spirit inspire you as you travel:

she the restlessness

driving you onwards

she the stillness

leading you to the heart of God.

The Trinity, the Three,

go with you as you travel;

and may your journey



and end

in them.

Without you,

Weaver of willows,

Spinner of sunrises,

I would have no place

to put my foot:

stumbling face first

into the mud puddles

of my mistakes.

Without you

Retriever of the fallen,

Mediator of the sin-splattered,

I would have no place

to put my soul:

adrift on the stormy sea

of seduction,

at the mercy of

bedlam’s blows.

Without you,

Whisperer of wisdom,

Gift-bearing dove,

I would have no place

to put my heart:

watching it shrivel

in despair’s

bitter grasp.

In you, I find my place,

Father, Son & Holy Spirit:


Blessed Trinity, in you.
