Nourishment of Soul

No nourishment of body
Stomach so hungry
Movement hits a wall
Muscles atrophy

Same is with the spirit
Soul will fade away
Nourishment of soul
Can come in many ways

First is one of prayer
Conversation with our God
An intimate connection
Born through saving Lord

Another deep of reading
In scripture and in Word
Insights of our brothers
Through soul’s ear is heard

Corporal acts of mercy
In serving brother dear
Poor or the imprisoned
Heart of Jesus shared

Feeding of the soul
In Jesus we will see
Through bread broken for all
His body grows in me
