Listen to this song
paying close attention to the words.
Watch out for which lines speak to you.
Pause here for a moment,
and ask yourself the following questions:
What stories are inscribed
on the pages of your book?
What silences are hidden there?
What hopes and dreams,
fears and anxieties,
are written between its lines?
Whose names can be found
between the pages?
For the next few days of this retreat,
are you willing to open its pages
to yourself and to the Lord?
Play this instrumental piece
as you reflect on these questions.
Feel free to post a short prayer
or reflection below,
if you like.
Whenever you’re ready,
proceed to the next section.
