En bønn i mørketiden
Lord Jesus Christ, your light shines within us. Let not my doubts nor my darkness speak to me. Lord Jesus Christ, your light shines within us. Let my heart always welcome your love.
(Taizé, inspirert av Augustin, Bekjennelser 12)
Christ Jesus, light of my heart, do not let my darkenss speak to me. In writing this prayer, Saint Augustine had this intuition: When our inner darkness attracts all our attention, we begin to converse incessantly, not with the Risen Christ, but with what hurts us in ourselves. Where can that lead? Nowhere at all.
