grounding

The poor are not blessed, our God,
because they are poor,
but because You love them
in their poverty,
and seek their blessing,
their peace and their well-being—
their joy.
May we know the blessing
of loving others in their poverties,
even as we name our own,
and turn to Your love
to find our own peace and well-being,
and joy.
This we pray
in the name of the one
who became poor
to tell us in our poverty
that Your love grounds us
as nothing else can.
Amen.
