The Lord's Prayer of the Lingering Tillichian

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 2:02 AM

From The Hereticus Papers by Robert Brown (borrowed from Catholic Information Network).

Ground of Being, No object among other objects,
In history as well as beyond history.
Support our finite freedom,
And sustain us when our dreaming innocence
Becomes Zeitgebund.
For with you alone
Are autonomy
And heteronomy
Eternally theonomous.

You have to know Paul Tillich to get this, so if you aren't familiar with Tillich's work, don't feel bad if this makes no sense at all.
