Br Padraig McIntyre in Glenstal gives a reflection about the Morning Of Easter.
In this reflection Br Padraig McIntyre osb invites us to pause for a moment and to notice who we are and where we are this Easter. Did we allow our feet to be washed on Holy Thursday? Did we leave our burdens and pain at the cross on Good Friday? In speaking about love coming he quotes from WH Auden’s Oh Tell Me The Truth About Love
When it comes, will it come without warning
Just as I’m picking my nose?
Will it knock on my door in the morning,
Or tread in the bus on my toes?
Will it come like a change in the weather?
Will its greeting be courteous or rough?
Will it alter my life altogether?
O tell me the truth about love. (WH Auden)
Finally he reminds us that Christ calls every day, ‘Behold I stand at the door and knock’
In: (Padraig) ‘So here we are again ……………..
Out: (Padraig) … I stand at the door & knock and if you are willing you can let me in.’
