Eucharistic Meditations


  1. After the host dissolves, the feeling lingers,
    Blood spreading from the heart to toes and fingers:
    His body makes my body its own place
    His blood suffuses me with healing Grace.
  2. He lives in me, though often like a stranger,
    I only seem to call on Him in danger:
    Yet He is still in me in spite of sinning,
    He always offers me a new beginning.
  3. As seeing me in Him and Him in me
    Is truth and not a dry philosophy
    I must care for us both in every deed
    According to His love and not my need.
