Friday 55-Holy of Holies

Only the high priest could enter,
only one day a year,
only after admitting his unworthiness,
only in vulnerability
could he meet God's heart.
We are not god and priest,
but we carry the divine spark
and I ask you,
before approaching my heart.
 to enter meekly,
confess your weakness
as I reveal my own.

Glad we have a new high priest
I understand systems but some things are hard to break into

Beautiful; I love it. . .

Every person you will ever meet is made in the Image and Likeness of God. Holy, indeed. . .

Such things are often pondered, seldom truly understood.

So, does it matter that one of my newest, dearest friends is a female priest in a rather stoic and staid religion? Safety in numbers, I always think...

Really fantastic 55
You are as creative as they come when
You put your mind to it.
Thanks for playing, and have a quiet and KickAss Week-End

This is truly excellent. I almost feel like stealing it to use as an intro for some of my own pieces.

It reminds me of something CS Lewis once said -

"Apart from the Blessed Sacrament iteself, your neighbor is the holiest thing that will ever be presented to your senses. . ."
