Reflection on Endings

by Hilary Horn

By Michael Moore

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want;

He makes me lie down in green pastures.

He leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul.

He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil;

For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;

You anoint my head with oil, my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;

And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Spent this afternoon and evening sitting by the bedside of yet another precious one who is close to slipping the bonds of this earth. The Shepherd’s Psalm has brought much comfort these past few months as we prayed it together.

Praying for the Lord’s complete healing and peace… praying for those who mourn… be present with us, Lord, as you are present in the breaking of the bread. Be present with us on this sacred journey through the Valley of the Shadows…

Dona Nobis Pacem

Grant Us Peace
