Our Longing is Your Presence

We seek because You’ve found us

After Truth for thus You’ve oriented us

After Beauty for thus You’ve saved & consecrated us

After Goodness for thus You’ve sustained, nurtured & healed us sacramentally

After Unity as thus You’ve empowered us as we become Your people

After Freedom as thus You’ve sanctified us as we surrender to Your Will in growing intimacy

Our wealth not in that which we possess but in You, Who possesses us

Your wounds, our healing

Our probings, Your penetrations

Our yearnings unnamed but perduring

Our desires muted not extinguished

For this journey remains our destination

This quest, itself, our grail

Our incessant longing transmuted into Your Holy Indwelling Presence
