Keep your heart with all vigilance,
for from it flow the springs of life.
Once evil is individualized, becoming part of
everyday life, the way of resisting it also
becomes individual. How does the soul
survive? is the essential question. And the
response is: through love and imagination.
Give us the ability, God, to see where trouble
is rampant and justice is needed. Then give
us, too, the conviction to act and the ability
to establish peace.
