As a faith community it’s a living presence,
a gift of everyone inclined to give worship –
praise and glory to God, the source of life;
who champions holiness and reason to love.
The throbbing chapters of human struggles
brought to the fore like a key to understand;
their implications to one’s quest of wisdom,
generate a response to God’s living sacrifice.
It’s a sublime action, a thought of obedience,
when one partakes of God in our Lord Jesus;
he remains with him throughout his very life,
and promises him the gift of everlasting life.
At the eucharist described as a special event;
God in Jesus who shows his true flesh and drinks,
like an ambrosia that provides life eternity,
immortality or never-ending journey to immortality.
It’s a sacred meal, a community affair indeed,
celebrating the paschal meal – a thanksgiving!
Jesus, whose great love for us to be saved,
reminds humanity of his promise for eternity.
It’s a journey within, a deep encounter with him,
As he said, “unless you eat the flesh of the Son
of man and drink his blood, you do not have
life within you.”
an invitation that opens the door to everyone;
to become Christ-like in every act of life.
