Eat me

         “Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood
         abide in me, and I in them.”
                   —John 6.56

Beloved One,
Love made real in this world,
you who create, you who bless:
drawn by your grace
like the aroma of fresh bread,
I savor you. I take you in.
I eat the flesh of your presence.
I drink the blood of your love.

Enter me.
Become me.
Be my strength and health,
my nerve and muscle.
By your grace
make me into the bread of your life.
