Saturday Synaxis



For this day’s sins, O God, grant us mercy:
For sloth that wasted the hours
Or for haste which outran its benedictions;
For fear that frustrated bold hopes
Or dullness that took everything for granted;
For anger that burst forth destructively
Or indifference that smothered the soul;
For suspicion wrongly held
Or for trust cheaply betrayed;
For indecision which avoided the evil
Or for compromise which disguised it.

- Samuel Miller
