A Litany for Advent

A friend posted this on Facebook and kindly granted me permission to share:

An Advent Litany by Stephanie Lillegard

From the clamor of angry and fearful voices, Good Lord, deliver us.

From pundits intent on the destruction of other people, Good Lord, deliver us.

From a sense of self-importance derived from listening to the shouting, Good Lord, deliver us.

From inner deafness and a calloused heart unready to answer the needs of others with our own generosity, Good Lord, deliver us.

 All I can add to that is a hearty "Amen!".  You can read more of Stephanie's writings on her blog, Recollected Life.
