Victoria long weekend

By the sea
by the sea
by the sea
we were sent
into all the World.

Drop your nets
drop your nets
drop you nets
for an amazing catch
fishers of men.

Be baptised
be baptised
be baptised
in the Name
of the Father, Son and Ghost.

Enter in
enter in
enter in
the Mass
after Reconciliation.

Be Confirmed
be Confirmed
be Confirmed
with a living flame.
Fill you hearts.

By the beach
by the beach
by the beach
on the hill
Christ went into the Heavens.

In the same
in the same
in the same
way we'll see
Jesus come again.

Be ready
be ready
be ready
watch and pray
for the night is not long away.

But the dawn
but the dawn
but the dawn
will break on us all
and shine in the darkness.

In the dark
in the dark
in the dark
of death
we are lead to peace.

with me, God.
Rejoice in our Saviour.

Mercy on
mercy on
mercy on
every one
all generations.

Lifted up
lifted up
lifted up
are lowly,
hungry. Filled and blessed.

Cross over
cross over
cross over
on dry land
bound for the promised land.

What is our Joy?

What is our joy?
When we first believed
Oh what peace there
In the Chapel I adored

I was middle aged
Before I had the Faith
To see Jesus was
The Bread of Life

The Spirit opened
My eyes were blind
Now Christ lives again
Father is behind

Each time Host is God
The Eucharist
To be adored
For consumerist

Why we crave more
More of the I Am
To be united
Married to the Lamb

Only at the Mass
In Holy Communion
And Adoration
We have such union

The Master's everywhere
At God's right hand
From Age to Age
Presence understand

The Bread of Life
He can save you
He ends your strife
He will heal you

Not just existence
God became Man
He is our essence
In forms of Wine

And Bread our Esse
We don't just exist
We live with Hope
With Eucharist!

Continuation of Reason without no Rhyme

from St. Athanasius Day yesterday morning
   Sure why should You, Holy Spirit, be with me, so close a friend; with my spirit: when I am so fickle a friend. So You give me words to say, so I express myself - defend our love. There is no rhyme to it for it is beyond reason, a continuation of reason without no rhyme, without reason. It is, it has become my esse. You are the Esse, the Existence, proceeding from the Creator and the Son of God, co-eternal, You simply are, Holy Lord. You, Who are, not what is, but most comparable to a mother, or Wisdom, sevenfold grace, exist in my life.
   Yet You consign Yourself to this beleaguered soul. Bridegroom of the Mother of God, who has done everything for us, You wish to be united to this poor one. I'd just say leave us alone in our misery and pride but You say defend poor spirits and boast in a crucifix. I'd remind You how I was taught and thought the symbols of our religion were just that but You say the Saints themselves teach the Faith comes with a struggle. This unbroken line of beyond reason thought comes with the Bride, the Church united to Christ Himself. Our very essence, our existence has changed.
   And it goes beyond all that is reasonable, no mere dress up Christianity.  This stage we're on now, all the World here take part in the unfolding mystery of love, You, Father have for Your Creation, You, Jesus have, for Your brothers and sisters, for Your Abba; You Spirit have. Recreating the World and all that is in it is an act of love, an act I want to get into, though I Confess my inability and inadequacy for the role, yes, but yes, we play from the Heart. It is the Sacred Heart, our lead, and the Immaculate, our leading lady, with this Abba, producer, You direct, Spirit.
   This is the way to peace. Get yourself to a priest. Be part, take part in the Church, in fifth month, whatever month we're in now, in the second decade 'seventeen, or any Year, in the third millennium now, this twenty-first century, anyway, here on Earth, this Church, two thousand years old, but still modern, make your peace in it, enter into it. Be a part of the peace and joy brought to the World, making peace and justice from development and peace, between all our brothers and sisters; between God and man. Peace and love, yes, but in the Spirit of Peace.
