Vigil of the Fifth Sunday in Lent

March 21, 2010

This cracked, imperfect vessel
You have chosen to fill
with Living Waters pouring
from overflow down the well
of the abyss… of my soul…
meeting You in darkness
of cloud-cover. The clay swells
in the healing moisture of Your LOVE.
No more cracks or brokenness–
the pot grows
into the tenderness shown
by mercy so immense,
a treasure never seen or spoken
(oh, won’t they ever listen?)
O, Joy of my heart!
I plead! Never depart!
Do not leave this earthen urn,
again exposing old wounds
and scars to the light of scrutiny
from unseeing eyes… confounded.
Dependent only on YOU,
the progression of this unworthy life decays
to blossom forth anew in humiliation,
the gift of YOU, Blessed Redeemer–
hanging publicly on the cross–naked…
to show the stark revelation
of the dignity of being human
in communion…
with the smallest of the small,
and the most miserable of the miserable.
Meaning to the Divine Mind–
over-seeing and creating the Cosmos–
now in tribulation…
You bring the finest wine
to drink in celebration
of Goodness and abundance…
Your Master Plan.
