People Are Watching

“I couldn’t do that, people are watching”

It’s exactly because people are watching that we must do it

Do what is light and love and true

For if we do not, if we are silent,

we silence the Holy Spirit inside us

the voice, our Jiminy Cricket,

that instructs on all that is pure and good and holy.

Do it so that people will see,

for their sake and for yours,

a taste of something good

 

o, Sweet the Blood of Jesus

Oh the sweet, sweet blood of Jesus

Cleansing and nourishing

to the body and soul

His sacrifice is our atonement

His suffering is our joy

for now He stands as king and LORD

above all the nations and angels and Universe

All of us call out His praise

For He is glorious and wonderful and good

His blood flows free through my veins

All Saints’ Day

The saints

the miracles

the legends

the sufferings

the tortures

the blood

and the glory.

Contemplating the servants of the Divine

the rich history

gives you a greater appreciation,

a holy community

to draw from when you feel alone

and powerless

and ineffectual.

Verily you carry the seed of these heroes past!

Live in light of that ineffable truth.
