Saturated


Sometimes all we need is a little nudge from our friends to send us out of our comfort zone and propel us to experience life in a new and adventurous way.  I was encouraged by my friend Christi, to enter some of my poetry in the Contemporary Religious Artists Association's National Show in Kansas City this coming July.  The theme of the show is God's Love.  I sent in three of my poems thinking nothing much would come of it, and then I promptly put the thought of the art show out of my mind.  What a delicious surprise to receive an email a month later telling me that all three of my poems were accepted into the show!!!

Soon I'll be off on an adventure like I've never known before, including my first airplane ride!  I'll be writing more posts about my experience with the art show and my visit to Kansas City in the future, but for today, on the Feast of Corpus Christi, I want to share one of my entries.

May the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ permeate your soul today and always!

Saturated

"Amen" I say, and the cup is offered;
a small sip and I return 
to my knees with the taste of
the Precious Blood still strongly
flavoring my mouth.

A little taste is all it takes
for the Blood of Christ to
saturate every pore of my body.
I am drenched in the beautiful liquid
that quenches my deep thirst for Him.

Oh Lord, let your Most Precious Blood,
outpouring  from your side,
permeate my soul forever.
Immerse me, flood me, wash me in your love.
