Longing and Belonging

Right now, in this moment
A practice which to share
Using all our senses
To be fully here

Listen in the silence
Taste and smell and feel
To see with souls’ vision
His Presence to reveal

One of great belonging
Of all creation be
Feeling a great longing
Rise inside of me

Found within loves’ binding
Restored, a new believer
In gratefulness of grace
Of giver and receiver

  1. Last night I met with the neophytes for a monthly meeting after their baptism. I asked how they feel about things, i.e., receiving Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation with an eye toward their first Reconciliation.

    One response was amazing: “I tried other Churches and see other organizations in action. The Church is the only place when you join you receive. Constantly the Church wants to give me gifts. The entire focus is receiving (sacred) gifts. I feel like I belong. Really belong.”
