Generous Lord of all creation,
You have surrounded us with opposing forces that pull and tug at us.
Yet you wish for us not merely balance but integration.
You want to knit us together within ourselves,
within our families, within creation.
I pray with you that we all may be one.
I seek your face in every face.
I seek your glory in everything.
— from the book A Retreat with Saint Anthony: Finding Our Way, by Carol Ann Morrow
