This is the way - come


Before Leaving the Presence of
the Blessed Sacrament

Food of the world,
how long before the world
comes to Your table?
Banquet of love,
highways, byways,
teem with starving souls
not yet aware
that empty chairs await them.
How can I compel them
to come in?

Make me this day
the envelope of Your invitation,
the aroma of Your feast,
the song of Your minstrel,
the banner on Your door.
Let every movement of my days announce:
Come feed on the Bread of life!

Paul Thigpen
From Jesus We Adore You (2001)
