Lamentation By Sister Susie Kresse, OP O my soul, I cry unto God, Absent from my being. Grieve for the violence And suffering of the world Affecting so many marginalized And hurting people. O absent God, Show your mercy and compassion. Provide shelter for the homeless, Food for the hungry, Health for the sick, Peace for the dying. Show us ways to provide for those in need. Help our government: Congress and Supreme Court. Help President Trump be open to your grace; Give him humility and appreciation for the gifts of others. Preserve us from fear and anxiety…. Let us see your face.
