Holy One of Blessing, Great One of the Universe. When I look at my country and see the violence, the hate, the confusion, the thousand factions, each offering an explanation blaming the others, I don’t know anymore what is true.
To borrow a metaphor from the philosopher Plato — about whom your servant Philo said, “He agrees with Moses in all things” — I feel as if I am a prisoner in a cave, seeing shadows of images of rumours.
How I long to walk outside and see, in the bright light of your sun, true things: justice, and goodness! And to share them with all who would hear, read, or feel!
Holy One of Blessing, Great One of the Universe, show us what is true.
