"There shall be no harm or ruin on all my holy mountain; 
for the earth shall be filled with knowledge of the Lord, 
as water covers the sea." (First Reading)

"Friendship"

Christ in the pebble
I can hold you

Christ in the bread
I can taste you

Christ in the wren
I can hear you

Christ in the lamb’s ear leaf
I can touch you

Christ in the lavender
I can scent your fragrance

Christ in a smile
I can see you

Christ in the dying
I can feel your presence

Christ my universe
embracing me

but only
when my mind
like a cup

is empty and still
