Angry.

Some blessings (for healing)

Some prayers

are

just too saccharin

right now.

“I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.”

No, that’s not quite right

either.

That’s the mantra of the other,

the other whom I do not want to be other,

the other whom I truly want to see.

The Face of the Other.

Lord help me.

I am angry, frightened, struggling…

to feel this on the very day I come under care

for ordination.

Help me O God who is Love.
