Deliver Us

prayingguyFrom the cowardice that
shrinks from new truth.
From the laziness that
is content with half-truths.
From the arrogance that
thinks it knows all truths:
O God of Truth, deliver us.

We know in part

Like all human knowledge,
the knowledge of faith
is also fragmentary.
Only when faith remains
aware of this does it remain free
from arrogance, intolerance
and false zeal.

–Hans Küng

Daring to believe it

It is not a matter 
of arrogance . . . but faith 
when we celebrate: 
we are accepted!

–St. Ambrose
(337 – 397)

Deliver us

From the cowardice that shrinks from new truth. From the laziness that is content with half-truths. From the arrogance that thinks it knows all truths: O God of Truth, deliver us.
