Herbert: blood and wine

Tuesday, February 27, 2018
    Feast of George Herbert, Priest, Poet, 1633
    Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, and they all drank from it. “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many,” he said to them.
    —Mark 14:23-24 (NIV)
Love is that liquour sweet and most divine,
Which my God feels as blood; but I, as wine.
    ... George Herbert (1593-1633), from The Agony in The Poetical Works of George Herbert, New York: D. Appleton, 1857, p. 43 (see the book)
    See also Mark 14:23-24; Matt. 26:28; Luke 22:20; John 6:53-56; 1 Cor. 10:16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I drink Your love like wine.
