Wednesday in the Octave of Easter
April 7, 2021
Today, in God’s Lavish Mercy, we pray with Psalm 105 as the psalmist rejoices in seeking and being found by God.
Our scripture passages today invite us to walk:
- beside one long crippled and amazed at unexpected healing
- beside the psalmist and all who seek the Lord
- beside the Emmaus disciples as they shed their confusion into the already present Light
The readings call us to deeper, more faith-filled journeys that
- challenge our passively accepted inhibitions
- appreciate the journey as part of the destination
- open our eyes to Grace otherwise invisible to our unhopeful hearts
Poetry: excerpt from The Wasteland by T.S.Eliot
Who is the third who walks always beside you?
When I count, there are only you and I together
But when I look ahead up the white road
There is always another one walking beside you
Gliding wrapt in a brown mantle, hooded
I do not know whether a man or a woman
—But who is that on the other side of you?
Music: Turn Around, Look at Me – The Vogues
