Wednesday of the 1st Week of Lent…

February 25, 2010


You, my Mother Church, ask so little…
we, the modern culture,
are all unsubtle…
casting aspersions on one another–
so easily, so carelessly.
Where do we go to see more clearly
who and what we are? (I’m tearful!)
Right to the heart of the matter,
why the rite that’s a healer–
the Sacrament of Penance (or “confession”)
will look deeply into one’s interior,
where first things first–
it is WE who are sinners…
Yes, you and I need this service–
to reconcile us to our neighbors
and Mother Church, as Christ “in personae”,
gives us priests to rectify the inner
nature given to these negativities.
Not a simple “laundry list”–but the reasons
we repeat these behaviors over-and-over
to be searched and relieved–
making us better and better persons.
Not just behaviors, either, but our emotions
and thought processes… to be seen
in their entirety–until like the Saints
we are perfected. Who needs
psychiatrists and therapists, when
Christ heals He does it all for perpetuity…
think not? Well, you are not seeing freely
the LOVE surrounding the family
of humans, who await the alms
only HE, the Final Judge can offer.
Pray deeply, my friends, with palms
uptilted; receive the nourishment
of the Eternal Bread of the angels…
food for the weary journey sent
by the Father/meant
for the world, which once again
has disdained it. Remember, He bled–
and you will, too. Head straight
to the Source of your own relief; gain it!
