Would you dare read to the finish
Pour over chapters with rapt attention
Memorize your favorite lines?
That’s a very beautiful prayer, thank you Colette. And indeed a very profound quotation too, I have read the link to Bishop Schori, and I will read the further links given there. I think I will agree, sadly. Substitute Australia for America in Bishop Schori’s letter, and I have only one amendment I would make: to ‘idolatry’ I would add ‘and savagery’.
