A prayer for the enduring power of vision, a pathway to the future
In this moment of time and in this place
We are made one with those
who have gone before us
Having sown the seed of our harvesting
That lights our way with an enduring vision
A vision engendered in prayer fortified
by the spirit.
A vision which sees within the immediacy
of the day’s tasks
The handing on of a tradition of excellence
Ordered not only to magnify the splendor
of the Truth
Whatever its demands
Wherever it may lead
But also to enkindle the desires of the heart
To embrace the ways of Mercy and Justice.
The same Spirit moving us all the while
from action to contemplation
To that Sabbath Rest in the spirit
wherein knowledge becomes wisdom
and discipline the order of love.
Thus a pathway is laid open to us
The far horizon beckons us beyond
Let us then fare forward
with faith as our compass
and love as our lodestar.
Written by Sister Eloise and Jean Tobin on the occasion of the Inauguration of M. Therese Antone, RSM, sixth president of Salve Regina University.
Each Monday and Wednesday, SALVEtoday will provide a prayer of reflection for the University community to reflect upon during this time of remote living and learning. #salvesgotthis #wellnesswednesdays
