Meditation

While gentle silence enveloped all things, your Word, Beloved, kissed light into creation.

Wisdom 18:14

These meditations, invite us into the gentle, enveloping silence of contemplation. They arise from the ground of silence and sing of Love’s desire for us to be one. They invite us to turn into the ground of our hearts, and to follow the stirrings of love into the luminous oneing of our being one in the heart of God.

 In this series of four meditations, first prayed between Pentecost and the feast of the Sacred Heart, we follow the touch of the enflaming of the Spirit in our hearts into deeper and deeper oneness in the Trinity, in the one divine heart. The themes are universal and may be prayed at any time of year.

THREEFOLD GOD OF TENDER UNITY (sung by Rev. Susanna Pain)
Sung to Finlandia

1. O threefold God of tender unity,
Life’s great unknown that binds and sets us free:
Felt in our loving, greater than our thought,
You are the mystery found, the mystery sought.

2. O blaze of radiance, source of light that blinds,
Fierce burning fire in clear prophetic minds,
You live in mystery, yet within us dwell;
Life springs from you as from a living well.

3. In every making, each creative dream,
And in the flow of life’s great healing stream,
When love is born or people reconciled,
We share your life, O Parent, Spirit, Child.

4. Most loving Parent, Child of joy and pains,
Spirit creating, life-force that sustains,
Tissue and bone are touches of your hand,
Your face we see in water, air and land.

5. O threefold God of tender unity,
Life’s great unknown that binds and sets us free:
Felt in our loving, greater than our thought,
You are the mystery found, the mystery sought.
