Adoration - Poem by Carmela Patterson
Excitement builds as I pull open the heavy Church door;
the Holy Water font invites me to make the blessing:
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Upon the Altar up the center aisle
I see You encased in golden filigree
And see You turn to face me.
No matter what side of the Church I enter
Our Lady's side, St. Joseph's side or the Center,
I see You seeing me.
A number of people come to Adoration and yet
when I come in and see that You are looking right at me,
my soul soars and I smile broadly because I feel loved,
Lord, truly loved just for coming to see You
because I love You.
This gift of Your Presence is so appreciated.
I love how You love me.
Help me to love as I ought.
This prayer comes to my mind now:
'We adore you, O Christ, and we Praise you,
Because by Your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world.'
