Prayer: Abbot Gilbert of Hoyland

When, good Lord, will you manifest yourself to us in bright sunshine? Yes, we are slow to understand and slow to see. But we are quick to believe; and we believe that if you chose to reveal yourself to us, you could do so this very day. O Lord, please appear to us, at dawn or at dusk or at the height of day. Come to our table to mealtimes, that we may share our meal with you. Come to our bed, that we may share our rest with you. Come to us at prayers, that we may rejoice and be glad.
