st francisAll you saints throughout the ages,

All buddhas and bodhisattvas,

All avatars and holy sages,

You who have seen the face of God,

You who have attained the highest truth,

You who have graced the world with your divine presence among us,

Stay through the countless ages

And pray for us all,

Work tirelessly for our liberation from ignorance,

Save us from endless lives of suffering,

Hear us from the depths of despair

And answer us from the throne of bliss.

Our hearts belong to you always.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

Dakshineswar Kali TempleYou hear us call out from the darkness. You hearken to our desperate prayers. You see us deep in the quagmire of the world, and your precious tears pour down. You cannot leave us to walk blindly through the night of our faithlessness.

You are born among us, as one of us, a weak and needy infant, yet the womb in which was conceived the universe and all that is. You walk with us and eat with us, worship with us and suffer with us. Great events decorate your life, and wondrous things are written about you.

Then you die like us. Just like us. And the world grows in light and love for your birth and your death. You gift us with yourself, the greatest of sacrifices.

And you have done it so many times. And you will do it many times more.

Come again, Lord, for countless lives, and stay with us, and remind us, and teach us the way back to you. We have no right to ask this of you, but we will, and we do.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.
