Sublime Humility

It is enough for me,
That in sublime humility,
Stooping sweet and low,
God descends into my soul,
In the Holy Eucharist.

I need nothing more
Than this.

He calms the raging tempest,
As He sates the yearning,
In my body, heart and soul.
The Food that I receive,
Has power to assuage,
my deepest hunger,
Slake my raging thirst.

I drink from springs,
Of living water,
Flowing from His wounded side,
And then I lie,
In cool green meadows
With my God who satisfies.

This is why
At every Eucharist,
When I have fed
On Bread,
Made of the finest wheat
And drunk the Wine,
Sweeter still than honey
In the comb,
In ecstatic bliss,
I cry,
"It is enough!
I ask no more
Than this."

He is  enough,
He always is,
Jesus Christ,
In the Holy Eucharist.

It is enough,
Eternal Love
Now fills my soul,
Ineffable my bliss.
There is no more,
I now possess,
All there is
this side life,
And all there is
In Heaven,
When I receive
My soul’s beloved,
In the Eucharist.

A Wedding Blessing - Lindsay & Denzil

A vision in white lace and satin,
Serenely she walked up the aisle,
That reminiscent smile of her mother’s,
Brought tears to many an eye.

The charming young groom at the altar,
Looked tenderly down at his bride,
Their eyes locked together a moment,
As she took her place by his side.

The sacred words chosen from Scripture,
Each hymn that was sung made it clear,
Their covenant vows to each other,
Would seal them in Christ evermore. 

We prayed that this newlywed couple,
Made one now as husband and wife,
Be granted the gifts of patience and love,
And laughter midst challenge or strife.

May they always know joy without ceasing
May their troubles be fleeting and few
May the Lord bless and keep them forever
In His love ever faithful and true.
