That this mask
of the passer-by,
the caiman
crossing the river
from one bank to the other,
accompanies
your passage
towards interiority
and Encounter,
and that the basin,
evoking
of baptismal waters,
extends the intuition
of this work of art
Sudano-Sahelian work of art.

Prayer

  • 21 May 2024

    God’s breath that speaks in us more than flesh and blood,
    sometimes without our knowing it,
    to lead us where we do not know, Praise be to you!
    God’s breath that keeps our faith alive, our contemplation of the Scriptures luminous,
    hope serene and strong, Praise be to you!
    Breath of God, fire that burns away the dross of pride, rekindles the ashes of our discouragement
    and dissolve fear, Praise be to you!
    God’s breath for our land
    that makes us speak each other’s language,
    build bridges and crumble the walls of our prejudices, Praise be to you!
    Breath of God, never leave us alone,
    rekindle in us the impulse to pray,
    and the joy of knowing that we are all enveloped in the love of the same Father, Praise be to you!

    When two or three are gathered in my name
    I am there among them.
    We cling to this promise.
    Blessed are you for being there,
    without looking at our inattentiveness, at our hearts so poorly dressed for the meeting.
    You are there, and to your Name we are grafted to pray,
    You tame for us the silence of God, your Father,
    whom you say is also our Father.
    And you lend us your Spirit,
    so that in our hearts it breathes the unspeakable Name without Him, without You
    Jesus our Brother, first-born, blessed are you to be here
    to gather us together in your Name.

    Lord,
    they were gathered together in the upper room
    with some women, including Mary,
    they were praying, waiting, as you had told them.
    Our upper room this evening is our hearts,
    they too are filled with expectation
    that our words cannot capture,
    a longing that you yourself never cease to explore.
    Perhaps God created us this way, beings of lack?
    So that we can experience everything
    that it is not this, nor that,
    in every place, that it is neither here nor there.
    So that we may tirelessly seek you,
    you who made us for you.
    So with them, we too stand in the upper room,
    waiting for what you have promised us,
    the Breath of Life, of Life in abundance.

    God our Father,
    we thank you for your Spirit,
    that great artisan of communication,
    the servant of truth
    who encourages listening, respect and dialogue.
    May He visit us, speak to us again about You
    and speak to You about us who are still on the road.
    We pray this through Jesus, the mediator of Your peace for all ages.

    Who ignores the frontiers of cultures and religions,
    past and present,
    come and renew the face of the earth!
