May this prayer--based on the expression of my parish priest, Father Cid--open you to new possibilities: “Imagine the joy you can have!”
Today, help me release
the tight hold
on my dark burdens
so light can reach into my heart.
Redirect my gaze
to the magic that exists all around me,
starting with the miracles in nature.
As I begin my day, opening my front door,
let me also open the door to joy.
