Sunday reflection and some Mozart

by Kate on October 7, 2012

Sunday is a good day for reflecting and thinking through priorities for the week ahead. Here are some questions to consider:

  • What are the important things for me to achieve in my my work, my personal life, and for my health and wellbeing?
  • What will I choose to do with this hour, this day, ┬áthis week?
  • What will I do about the “other things”, which aren’t important? (remembering some of them might still need attention)
  • What do I need to do differently in the week ahead?
To help your reflection, here’s 5 minutes of spine-tingling awesomeness from Mozart’s Requiem (the Confutatis and Lacrimosa).
Enjoy!

Confutatis

When the accused are confounded,
and doomed to flames of woe,
call me among the blessed.
I kneel with submissive heart,
my contrition is like ashes,
help me in my final condition.

Lacrimosa

That day of tears and mourning,
when from the ashes shall arise,
all humanity to be judged.
Spare us by your mercy, Lord,
gentle Lord Jesus,
grant them eternal rest. Amen.
