Every Wednesday we invite you to Pause & Pray with us:


“And you, Jesus, good Lord, are you not also Mother?
Would a mother not be one who, like a hen,
gathers her young beneath her wings?
In truth, Lord, you are my Mother! Amen.”

– Anselm of Canterbury, 11th century


34Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets
and stones those who are sent to it! How often have I
desired to gather your children together as a hen
gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not
willing! 35See, your house is left to you. And I tell you,
you will not see me until the time comes when you say,
“Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the
Lord.” (Luke 13:34-35, NRSV)
