The Healer

Sharing with you a meditation based on today’s Mass reading from Luke 5:12-16

2015.01.09 The Healer

“Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean.”

 Alone I sit.
Sores and wounds are my company.
Forgotten in brokenness,

The voices I hear.
A healer has come this day.
My last thread of hope.
I go.

In the dust I lie.
Sores and wounds for Him to see.
Before my heart cries out.
He knows.

Out He reaches.
Human touch long forgotten.
Now renewed and piercing heart and soul.
I sing.

I go forth.
“I absolve you” was spoken.
Steps firm, on a mission.
To love.
