Bread and Wine

The bread…is bread.
The wine…is wine.
And yet, that said,
What’s here’s divine.

No change to meat.
No change to blood,
And yet we greet
Christ’s flesh, Christ’s blood.

He rose from death.
Sin’s death was shown.
Our life, our breath
Are now his own.

This bite we eat,
This sip we drink,
Are where we meet
Our Lord and think.

And as they were eating, he took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to them, and said, “Take; this is my body.” And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, and they all drank of it. And he said to them, “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many....”
--Mark 14:22-24

Piter Turek left a kind note that didn't appear to be machine-generated. Pieter, you're welcome here, but I deleted the note's contents because they included a link to a web site where the basic business model is to encourage dishonesty.
