Holy Thursday, 2016

Holy Thursday

Only in the first whispered imaginings has the world as a whole been at peace:

When the Word came forth and the great lights parted into day and night and it was Good.

With humanity came the chaos of ego and pride; power and fear;

and the grace of knowing, feeling, bone-deep and heart certain,

what it is to be at Home, to be known, to be Loved.
The contradictions are great; the potential gently, entirely, astounding;

Astounding and revealed in a multitude of ways, including
in the blessing of the bread that we share;

in the breaking of the bread we need;

in the living out of a Love that has been, and is, and shall be
from whisper, through wail, into laughter, into Peace once again.
Kimberly M. King, RSCJ
