解夢

不知從何時開始,我每隔一陣子便會做一種獨特的夢1。前兩天收到一位長輩的電郵,是一篇禱文。看著看著,我覺得天主在替我解夢。

Fr. Dismas’ prayer

Sometime, not long after his cancer diagnosis, Fr. Dismas received a prayer, sent to him by a relative stranger, this prayer – reflection became his prayer. I would almost daily discover him sitting silently in his office next to mine in those days, he would smile & point to this little prayer which he kept on top of his desk…“just saying my prayer,” he would respond. He chose it for his final conference with his brothers & I know he would want me to share it now with you. “After all”, he would look at me with those gentle & definitely playful eyes…” (but without a trace of “perhaps”), “After all, Reverend Father, it’s all that really needs to be said.”

Be silent.
Be still.
Alone. Empty
Before your God.
Say nothing.
Ask nothing.
Be silent.
Be still.
Let your God
Look upon you.
That is all.
God knows
And understands.
God loves you with
An enormous love,
Wanting only to
Look upon you
With love.
Quiet.
Still.
Be.
Let your God
Love you.

+ Abbot Peter
