For the past two years, during Lent, I write a daily poem to reflect. They are my expression of a beautiful opportunity — an invitation to turn a gaze inward. I must say, I often reread them during the year. There are always times when I need to re-center. What better way than along a blessed walk with our Lord?
This Lent, I plan to publish some of the poems. Day by day, on my blog, I will post one with a small reflection. I wanted to share one of my favorites with you today. I hope you enjoy it, and I pray you will come journey with me at Becoming Sound this Lent.
There are times, as confusion and sorrow attempt to set claim upon our weary souls, we doubt. Where is Jesus? Where could He have gone? How did this happen? I thought … where do your thoughts take you?
Even as Jesus approaches us, trying to offer comfort, we do not recognize Him. The doubt has cast such cloud above us; we can’t identify the shadow that walks beside us, beckoning us. This week, as you walk the road toward the Eucharist, take notice. Do you see Him? As you taste His blessed body and blood, do you know Him?
Awaken. Be nourished. Do not doubt the Way. He is with you; feel His whisper upon your cheek. Be blessed.
