'The Heaven of Glory and the Heaven of Faith' : A poem by St. Elizabeth of the Trinity
Over the course of the Easter Triduum, let us bring our focus onto three lines again within Elizabeth's poem.
Maundy Thursday: 'As sharers now in God's own Essence'
Today we recall the Last Supper where Jesus and his apostles gathered to share the bread and wine and to reflect on the meaning of 'service' before God.
May we too renew our commitment to 'the act of sharing' , to open ourselves
to the needs of others and to remain strong in the presence of God (His Essence) as we encounter challenges and, at times, feel weary and isolated in the daily tasks that can face us.
