from the pages of Patrick's
Personal Spiritual Journal
Fault-finding I am.
I love to place a good blame.
As long as it’s not on myself.
O Lord, where does that come from?
A lack of love?
I cannot hope to correct this
It is too pervasive
Set me free, O God, from laying blame.
For everything from war to the driving of a car.
My prayer for now is simply to become aware of this darkness
And bring it into the light
To slow long enough to notice what this tendency is doing to my heart
