Holy Communion

communion3

If we look
deeply enough,
If we pause
long enough,
If we become
still enough,
If we gaze
simply enough,
If we are
quiet enough,
then we begin,
at last,
to understand
that
the seeming silence
of
creation
is a dwelling
in the deep Eucharistic
mystery of
reality
itself .
Where all that is,
comes to us
through Him.
Where all that is,
offers itself
with Him.
Where all that is,
exists
in Him;
and He is
Love.
And then we,
sons and daughters
of the Most High,
and,
brothers and sisters
of all
being,
may join this
eternal dance
of
creation’s
consecration
and offer
our sacrifice
of presence
and praise
to the
One
who descends
daily,
and, who,
humbly in
the hands
of His
priests,
invites our
entry
into
holy
communion
once
again.

By Brother Richard OFM
