         “Those who love me will keep my word,
         and my Mother-and-Father will love them, and we will come to them
         and make our home with them.
         The Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Mother-and-Father will send in my name,
         will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you.
         Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.”

                  —John 14.23, 26-27

Holy Trinity, Mystery of Love,
Holy Community, Heavenly Family,
I open my heart to your presence,
making your home with me.
I sit among you, sibling,
gathered at our table,
fourth member of the Trinity.
I open my heart to your peace,
settled about me like a home.
I open my heart to your whole family,
all of us beloved,
all of us siblings,
all of us enfolded
in your loving, peaceful presence.
All of us holy.
