God’s Complete Embrace


EDITOR’S NOTE:  This is the second in a series of nine Eucharistic poems by Br. Dain, leading up to Corpus Christi.  We hope they will be an inspiration for your prayer and reflection.



All the Love of Mighty God,

His mystery complete,

Silent Lover’s unheard shout,

In sacrament we greet.

Plenitudo temporum,

Communication real,

No unsung refrain of Love,

No more to reveal.

Calvary and empty tomb,

Victory of Grace,

All contained in silent veil:

God’s complete embrace.
