The fire in the human being

Prayers for the journey from Ascension to Pentecost -Day 6

Hymn of the Universe

lock us up in the deepest depths of your heart,
and then, holding us there, burn us,
purify us,
set us on fire, sublimate us,
till we become what you want us to be,
through the utter destruction of our selfishness.

by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
