A Regal Relationship

by Sr. Juliemarie McDonald, SND on 05/10/2012

in Easter

You are my friends if you do what I command you. I no longer call you slaves, because a slave does not know what his master is doing. I have called you friends, because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father. (John 15:15-16)

A Prayer Poem by Sister Juliemarie McDonald, SND, for the
Sixth Sunday of Easter, Cycle B
May 13, 2012

Regal, chosen by Christ,
Each one of us,
Likened to a Temple, filled with the King’s glory!
A cup,
Thirsting to be filled with friendship with the Divine.
I am empty until I am filled and energized with the love of God.
Only then can I
Nourish others, who also hunger and thirst for the living God.
Spread your spiritual wings, like a butterfly, to soak up the “Son’s” energy.
Hallow a space, hollow out a time, hammer in some boundaries.
Isolate yourself on a self-made mountain top.
Plead not for presents of power and prestige, but for the regal relationship
with God for others.

For Reflection and Sharing:

  1. What does having a friendship with God mean to you?
  2. How are you enriched by your friends?
  3. How do you enrich them?
