My Journey to God

This Is My Body

Take this bread and break it.
Give it to the hungry, lonely,
those who live
where no one else will go,
and fill their emptiness and need.
Eat with them and
share the holy meal.

Be the Bread that’s broken.

Take the wine and spill it out
upon the weak and poor,
abandoned ones
whose vacant eyes
hold pain we cannot know.
Drink with them and
share the grace of vine.

Be the Wine poured out.

No spoken words or golden cup
upon this human table,
only love’s sustaining gift in God,
whose presence here gives hope
through creature with Creator.
