O gracious light,
pure brightness of the everliving Father in heaven,
O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed!
Now as we come to the setting of the sun,
and our eyes behold the vesper light,
we sing your praises, O God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
You are worthy at all times to be praised by happy voices,
O Son of God, O Giver of Life,
and to be glorified through all the worlds.
I imagined myself staring at this sunset while reading over and over this beautiful prayer until it was sealed onto my lips.
SO HERE’S YOUR CHALLENGE:
Take one of your best pictures that you snapped this summer and combine it with a prayer. It can be a formal prayer such as this one from a liturgy or it can be one that you carefully craft yourself.
There are several resources out there to help you take it to the next level: The WORDSWAG app for iphone allows you to combine text and photo in a vareity of cool ways. Or there’s QUOTESCOVER which helps you combine text and photo suitable for a number of social media situations.
Post them yourself somewhere or feel free to send me the result by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you give me permission, I’ll post it in the coming days.
