Dear God, I reflect on my past, both distant and near. Whom have I harmed? How do I know? If they were here with me, now, what would they say? What would they tell me?

Lord, let me look at myself squarely. Let me stand erect in the face of who I am. Let me greet all in the world as brothers and sisters.

Let me not be double minded! Clear away this selfish pride, this fearful self-absorption. Let my motives be single, clear, pure. Guide my heart towards love, dear Lord. Let me take all comers by the hand, as you have done for me. Let me whisper in their ear the good news that all will be well, all is already well.

(Letter #1358)
