Prayer for Sunday (Eid al-Fitr)

Today is the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr, ending the month of fasting. It is also the Eastern Orthodox Christian festival of the Transfiguration.

We are not human beings on a spiritual journey.
We are spiritual beings on a human journey.
~ Stephen Covey

Lord
may I ever speak
as though it were the last word that I can speak.
May I ever act
as though it were the last action that I can perform.
May I ever suffer
as though it were the last pain that I can offer.
May I ever pray
as though it were for me on earth
the last chance to speak to you.

(Chiara Lubich, The Focolare Movement, Italy)
