Resurrected Living
"What are you going to do with your new resurrected life? This is the heroic question." Richard Rohr

A Prayer by G.K. Chesterton

gk-chesterton

O God of earth and altar, in mercy hear our cry;
our earthly rulers falter, our people drift and die;
the walls of gold entomb us, the words of scorn divide;
take not Thy thunder from us, but take away our pride.

From all that terror teaches, from lies of pen and tongue;
from all the easy speeches that satisfy the throng;
from sale and profanation of honor and the word;
from sleep and from damnation, deliver us, good God!
