Easter Grace, 2017

Easter Grace 2017
You ask each of us to hold with our lives
a portion of this Holy Chaos—
a portion of what it means to be human,
made in your image and likeness,
and yet, and still, and completely, free.

So it is that we make our way
and we find our lives holding
the Truth of our world and the truth in faith
of who you call us to be, by your life, your witness. 
It is a sometimes contradictory fullness, that Truth:
Bombs, blooms; evil, awe;
Love, Humanity; Love, Divinity;
Love, Death; Love, Resurrection;
Love.

We ask your blessing
upon this meal we are about to share
and upon the company we keep
so that by the nourishment of both
we may continue to live and move and have Being
as Easter people.  As a people who believe
that there is a light no darkness can overcome;
that death does not hold us bound;
that Love will be what sets us free

to Rise; to Rise; to Rise.
Kimberly M. King, RSCJ
