Not content to live on the surface
Eating, drinking, shopping or buried in entertainment
Aware of a hollow within
Thirsty for more of God’s presence.
Searching for meaning.
Empty, even though ’saved’
It drove me to
Lombard artist (ca. 1520), Madonna and Child
I stepped out in faith,
Letting go of old prejudices against Catholics
If the Eucharist really was the Body of Christ
Then I needed to ,eat, share
Trusting in the witness of millions of saints who had gone before me
Embracing the unknown,
Walking into the Unknown
To discover that
Mystery is liberating
Embraced by a Heavenly Mother
Surrounded by a cloud of witnesses
Plugged into a Mystical Body
The scriptural basis and the beauty of the liturgy lured me and the strong presence of the Holy Spirit kept me returning. I also find the mystery liberating because there is freedom in not having to explain everything and not having to know everything but being enabled to trust and rest in God. Thank you for sharing these powerful words.
