Holy Thursday

13 April 2017 | General Interest

Christ reaches out,

made flesh through human kindness.

'This is my body' -

these broken bodies,

these damaged lives.

'This is my body' 

these simple gestures of humble service.

'This is my body' -

bread of compassion,

broken for you,

cup of hospitality offered to you.

'Do this in memory of me',

and never forget,

I have no hands but yours,

no eyes or ears,

no loving heart on earth but yours.

Wherever two or three are gathered

in my name,

I am there.

G. Simmonds
