Devotions from Leighton Ford’s book, The Attentive Life

God’s love reaches out to us and calls us to our heart’s true home.
“Love is seeking us, the only Love that redeems time, that takes the fragments of what is past and the hope of what is coming, and binds them together in the love of God which is in Christ our Lord.”

A prayer by St. Fursey for this day:
“The arms of God be around my shoulders

the touch of the Holy Spirit upon my head,

the sign of Christ’s cross upon my forehead,

the sound of the Holy Spirit in my nostrils,

the vision of heaven’s company in my eyes,

the conversation of heaven’s company on my lips,

the work of God’s church in my hands,

the service of God and the neighbor in my feet,

A home for God in my heart,

And to God, the Father of all, my entire being.
