God of the cross, you are with us
in our struggles for justice,
in our feelings of isolation,
in our physical suffering.

God of the Resurrection, you are with us
in our deepest healing,
in our claiming of your abundant life,
in our embrace of a new reality.

God of the Emmaus road, you are with us
in our overwhelming grief,
in our struggles to understand,
in our persistence on the journey.

You are with us God,
even when we want to look away,
even when we live with doubt,
even when we don’t know why our hearts are burning.

Thank you for walking with us on this road.
Teach us.
Feed us.
Open our eyes.
