The Lord Is My Chef Breakfast Recipe, Saturday Easter Wk. III, 11 May 2019
Thank you very much Lord for the gift of pilgrimage to your Holy Land. Thank you for the gift of experiencing you, meeting you not only at your holy sites but among our fellow pilgrims and the people we have met.
Most of all, thank you for a glimpse of you in our hearts, in our selves and being. There is something we cannot express or say for they are too deep for words.
Like Simon Peter, all we can say is, “Lord, to whom shall we go. You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and are convinced that you are the Holy One of God” (Jn.6:68-69).
Life is a series of coming and coming. Every time we leave, we also come. We leave the Holy Land to come home.
But home is where the heart is and where our heart is, there our treasure is.
May you remain in us Lord Jesus and let us come to you always. Amen.
