Vaughan: communion

Sunday, November 14, 2021
    Commemoration of Samuel Seabury, First Anglican Bishop in North America, 1796
    Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.”
    —John 6:35 (NIV)
        O drink and bread,
        Which strikes death dead,
The food of man’s immortal being!
        Under veils here
        Thou art my cheer,
Present and sure without my seeing.
    ... Henry Vaughan (1622-1695), The Poetical Works of Henry Vaughan, Boston: Osgood, 1871, p. 262 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 26:26-30; 1 Cor. 10:16-17;11:23-32; John 6:32-35; Heb. 10:34; 1 Pet. 4:13
Quiet time reflection:
    Thank You, Lord, for the gift of Your body and blood.
