Week Of October 23rd

 

While Fr. Aidan Peter is away, he would like to share this reflection with you:

 

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.
