“Oh, Win, what a harvest you will then have, when all things are to be gathered. I will join with you and ask this grace for you because it seems to me a goodly thing, and that who hath this hath a great deal and wants but little.”

Mary Ward

At my prayer place, I consider the Spirit of Oneness holding me through generations.

Opening Prayer

With sincerity I offer myself to be wholly God’s.


I desire to deepen my faith and relationships.


I read the prayer texts to anchor myself in divine relationship.

With my imagination, I enter the Gospel of the Transfiguration of Jesus. I recreate the place in my mind. I see the people and listen to the conversations.

Where is the luminous beauty of love in my life that touches my heart and opens it to loving service and relationships?

Colloquy of the Senses

I gaze at the stars above, or I hold grains of sand in my palm, symbols of God’s divine generosity.
I speak with Jesus and together we consider my relationship with others in my community, ministry and my relationship with creation. Enlightened and consoled by his presence, I ask for deeper faith and trust in him.

Prayer texts:

I will make your descendants as many as the stars of heaven and the grains of sand on the seashore. Genesis 22:17
Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain apart, by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no one on earth could bleach them. And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, who were talking with Jesus. Then Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; let us make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” He did no know what to say, for they were terrified. Then a cloud overshadowed them, and from the cloud there came a voice, “This is my Son, the Beloved, listen to him! Suddenly when they looked around, they saw no one with them any more, but only Jesus. Mark 9:2-10
