Litany: Losing one’s life

“If you try to keep your life for yourself, you will lose it.
But if you give up your life for me, you will find true life.” Mark 8:35

Those who want to save their lives
have good health insurance,
pay their bills on time,
exercise and eat right…
Those who want to save their lives
will lose them.

Those who lose their lives
in pursuit of God
who abandon the world’s values,
who live generously and faithfully,
who listen to a voice beyond…

Those who lose their lives
in pursuit of God
will find life.
May we learn the value of loss.
May we know the value of life. Amen.

— written by Katherine Hawker (2002) based on Mark 8:35. Posted on the Liturgy Outside website.
