Antiphon

         O Burner of Chaff, Come

 Scripture

Luke 3:17  With winnowing fork in hand, that one will clear the threshing floor, and gather the wheat into the granary, but will burn the chaff with unquenchable fire.

 Prayerful Reflection
O Burner of Chaff, Come~
In your wisdom and mercy
cleanse us.
Clear the chaff from our lives.
Burn away the desire for the material,
the pursuit of the ultimately insignificant,
the self-righteousness of our judgments,
the vanity of our entitlement.
Sweep out excess ego and
extraneous wants.
Leave us with
the life-giving, nourishing, sustaining wheat
of your love, mercy and compassion
that our joy may be full.
Amen.
