Your Face

When did we see you, Lord?

When?

 

I’ve seen you in images

The bambino in the crib

I’ve seen you in the sacrament

In the tabernacle hid

I’ve seen you in the stations

That line the holy wall

And in hearing the holy gospel

I’ve seen you most of all

 

But in the flesh you’re not around

To let me see your face

I am not an apostle

I cannot take their place

And yet you say I see you

When can that be so?

 

In everyone you meet today

I tell you

It is so

+ Matthew’s Gospel of the Last Judgement, (Matthew 25: 31-46) the story of the sheep and goats, gives us this truth.
