Fr. Gordon used this Cursillo prayer during his sermon on Sunday, Sept. 3rd. It's a great piece that should be read--and reread!
and the Lord said--”Go!”
and I said, who me?
and He said, yes, you
and I said But I’m not ready yet
and there’s company coming
and I can’t leave the kids
and you know there’s no one to take my place
and He said, you’re stalling
again the Lord said “go”
and I said I don’t want to
and He said I didn’t ask if you wanted to
and I said Listen, I’m not the kind of person to get involved in controversy
besides my family won’t like it
and what will the neighbours think
and He said Baloney!
and yet a third time the Lord said “Go”
and I said do I have to?
and He said Do you love Me?
and I said Lord I’m scared
people are going to hate me
and cut me into little pieces
I can’t take it all by myself
and He said Where do you think I’ll be?
and the Lord said “go”
and I sighed
Here I am, send me.
