A Prayer for Shabbat

Where the world is dark with illness,
Let me kindle the light of healing.
Where the world is bleak with suffering,
Let me kindle the light of caring.
Where the world is dimmed by lies,
Let me kindle the light of truth.

(We prayed this Jewish prayer during Advent when I was working at the Catholic Church.)

Better to light a candle than curse the darkness

Lovely! And it appears that the flame, like "the moon[,] is always female"! Happy snowy coldness outside!
