A Prayer for Holy Saturday

dalu_st_johnEach time
we do not speak your name
for fear of ridicule
we deny you.

Each time
we do not bring your love
into a situation
we deny you.

Each time
we fail to see your face
in friend of stranger
we deny you.

Forgive us,
as you forgive all
who humbly turn to you,
and open our eyes once more
to the reality of the Cross.
