Prayer for Easter

Weeping Mary

“Who is it you are looking for?”
is a question for me,
not just for Mary.

Mary looked at Jesus, and saw the gardener.

I look at my
neighbor, and see a stranger;
a stranger, an see an antagonist;
an antagonist, and see an enemy.

Help me, Lord, to see you,
wherever, and whoever, you are.
