God of Mercy and Compassion, of Peace and Reconciliation, pour your Power on all Your children in the Middle East: Jews, Muslims and Christians, Palestinians and Israelis.   Let hatred be turned into Love, fear to trust, despair to Hope, oppression to freedom that violent encounters may be replaced by loving embraces and that Justice may be experienced by all.  AMEN

I wrote a commentary and then lost it.  I am in a fair bit of pain just now and might write a commentary again, if pain killers help relieve my situation.  I will head the commentary TWO FRONT WAR.

Truly in depth interview with Sr Ruth Burrows OCD




Every year, Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams commissions a book for the Anglican Communion to read during Lent. This year he asked Ruth Burrows—known as Sister Rachel in her Carmelite community—to write a book on how to know God. Williams noted that Burrows's book Guidelines for Mystical Prayer changed his own life more than 40 years ago. Her Lenten book for 2012, Love Unknown, is about prayer and the Christian life. Her other books include To Believe in Jesus and Essence of Prayer.
