Approachable Jesus: An Inspirational Poem

Thoughts Inspired Upon a Visit to Mass at Holy Name Cathedral, Chicago, on this January 1, 2012

The beauty of the Lord is within and around you;

Rejoice and be glad in this.

The beauty and grace of the Loving God, of Jesus His Son,

Who made and who sustains thy life;

In this place is power and life, vigor and health…

Feel it, live it, learn and love it; grow and be graced by it,

Partake of the riches of such a life, lived and enjoyed beautifully.

Honor it, cherish it, protect and sustain it –

Get on to those lazy knees and off the rear end for a while; engage the deep recesses of heart and soul.

Approach the Lord Jesus, that marvelous Prince of Peace, God made man.

You can do so, as the priest in his excellent sermon said, through Mary the Mother of God. Those shepherds knew that precious baby was very special, and the Magi did too. They noticed the child and could not help but notice his mother- they knew by the way they were together that she was the mother of this young king, announced by angels and destined for greatness.

Jesus, to me be ever more real, sustained daily and loved always.

Christ to me be life and living, work and play, be all in all things to me.

The beauty of the Lord is in this place, within and around you. Rejoice in this and be very glad.
