Prayers Before the Senate on​ May 5, ​2016


“Before the Mast”

We All Live in the Shelter of One another

​From ​

This magnificent gilded​

dome and the pioneers  above the rotunda

sanctifying all life no matter how great or small;  vulnerable or endowed with infinite riches;

we all belong here immigrant and nomad;  tribe and abandoned child

we are all blessed by our presence here

if we’re still present while listening

to what matters most that we’re 

full of compassion, patience and living as simply as we dare

that we all live in the shelter of one another from  the beginning 

to our natural end
