Blessing the bread, the cup

Then he took a cup of wine, and when he had given thanks for it, he said,
“Take this and share it among yourselves…” Luke 22:17

Let us bless the bread
that gives itself to us
with its terrible weight,
its infinite grace.

Let us bless the cup
poured out for us
with a love that drenches,
that makes us anew.

Let us gather
around these gifts
simply given
and deeply blessed.

And then let us go
bearing the bread,
carrying the cup,
laying the table
within a hungering world.
