Meditation on The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe

The winds rage tonight

across Osage County

this week we give thanks

for Your riches and bounty

to those whose Thanksgivings

must give thanks alone

I wish you a family

I hope you a home

I pray that these winds

will bring a warm rain

to melt all our hearts

and cleanse all our stains

May the human divide

in gender and race

politics, class, & religion

erase

May we all come together

the last to the least

and dine at one table

an immaculate feast

May the law be forgiveness

may the ruling be love

may the manners at table

be those from above

May the broken, dejected

deserted and lost

be healed and accepted

and found at all cost

May the King of the Universe

descend, with us dine

if He brings the bread

I’ll bring the wine

 

Happy Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe!  Happy Thanksgiving!  One week 'til Advent (I don't celebrate Black Friday)!
