Praying on the Camino

The Rev. Nancy E. Gossling


Today, I begin my pilgrimage to the Camino to Santiago de Compostela, Spain.

Praying

The Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic
(The 1st word of the prayer is the whole prayer;
The rest is simply other ways of saying the 1st word.)
        One breath breathing
        May I contain the essence of this One
        May I exist for this One
        Grant me the delight that is your delight
                    In oneness and uniqueness
        I receive what is necessary and give to my
                    Other self what is necessary for we are all One
        I forgive by breathing through to release
        Let me not forget who I am,
                    Made in your image and likeness.

Breathing: one breath, one step, one day at a time.
