Wonder of the Universe


oh wonder of the universe, that

                                                         I should sit here … like this…

quietly contemplating

the silence…

spinning in the quiet clouds of fragrant smoke,

swirling… I drift… alone.

And you, halfway around the world…

are closely pondering

This same face of Christ…

 the Eucharist.

This burning furnace of charity …

His Heart is steady…

unchanging… beating…

quiet flames that are precisely the same for all eternity,

relentlessly pulling us towards

this mystery of Life…

the rhythm of His  chest…

rising and falling.

And even though vast blue skies

and depths of oceans unknown ….

separate us… they can do nothing

to divide us from this

same universal Truth:

Christ is the Eucharist.

    Thank you so much for the extremely kind comments. We owe all of our being, all of everything we have… All of everything we don’t have…. Back to God. When I gather my thoughts and write, I just pray to bring glory to the One I owe my everything… As well as my nothing. God bless.
