Week of July 17th

While Fr. AP is away, he has chosen this passage for you to enjoy:

Bread, wine and gentleness

Be gentle

When you

Touch bread.

Let it not lie

Uncared for,

Unwanted:

So often bread

Is taken for granted.

There is such beauty

In bread

 Beauty of sun and soil,

Beauty of patient toil.

Wind and rain have caressed it,

Christ often blessed it.

Be gentle

When you touch bread.

Be loving

When you drink wine.

So freely received

And joyfully shared

In the spirit of him who cared.

Warm as a flowing river,

Shining and clear as the sun.

Deep as the soil

Of human toil.

The winds and rain caressed it.

Christ often blessed it.

Be loving

When you drink wine.
