Thomas Merton discovered, some five decades ago,
that the deepest level of communication is not
communication, but communion. It’s wordless.
It’s beyond words, and it’s beyond speech, and it’s
beyond the cramped confines of the superficial ego.
So, deeper and deeper we go — down into the body,
into a vast heart that ponders mystery in silence,
the sacred heart that knows all, that guides us all
to the palace of nowhere — and we fall, fall into
holy communion with the one who loves us always.
I’VE QUOTED JOE OVER AND OVER.
I QUOTED HIS POEM ABOUT BOWING TO EVERYTHING at our 60TH ANNIVERSARY.
THIS POEM ON COMMUNION IS A……IT LEAVES ME SPEECHLESS,
THANK YOU JOE.
YOU SPEAK TO MY HEART.
