A Prayer for a New Beginning

From: To Bless the Space Between Us by John O’Donohue

In out-of-the-way places of your heart,

Where your thoughts never think to wander,

This beginning has been quietly forming,

Waiting until you were ready to emerge.

For a long time it has watched your desire,

Feeling the newness growing inside you,

Noticing how you willed yourself on,

Still unable to leave what you had outgrown

It watched you play with the seduction of safety

And the grey promises that sameness whispered

Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent

Wondered if you would always live like this.

Then the delight, when your courage kindled

And out you stepped onto new ground,

Your eyes young again with energy and dream

A path of plentitude opening before you

Though your destination is not yet clear

You can trust the promise of this opening;

Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning

That is at one with your life’s desire

Awaken your spirit to adventure;

Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;

Soon you will be home in a new rhythm

For your soul senses the world that awaits you.

AMEN!

Happy Earth Week!

Celebrate Creation!

Fordham COVID Memorial

On Friday, November 6th on the Keating Steps at Rose Hill and Thursday, November 12th on the Outdoor Plaza at Lincoln Center the Fordham community joined together for an interfaith candle lighting & prayer service to honor and recognize those adversely impacted by COVID-19. At Lincoln Center, Campus Ministry partnered with United Student Government (USG), Muslim Student Association (MSA), and Christian Lighthouse Fellowship (CLF). We give thanks to them in aiding our efforts to commemorate those affected by the pandemic.

Our community remembers all members of the Fordham Family lost this year, particularly during the COVID-19 Pandemic, and prays for healing of body, mind, and spirit for all of the sick and grieving. We as well reflect on the deep impact the pandemic has had on our New York City community, and more specifically our Bronx community. We keep them in our prayers to heal as a community and become stronger together through the process.

Join our Fordham community to pray for remembrance and healing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Recordings of our Interfaith Prayer Services can be found here: Rose Hill and Lincoln Center.
