4TH SUNDAY OF EASTER YEAR C
Growing in Grace
Grace is the Divine Unmerited Generosity that is
everywhere available, totally given, usually
undetected as such, and often even undesired.
Only the theme of grace is prepared to move
religion beyond the bad and tired storyline that carries a very static notion of
God, grace, and the human person. The only thing separating you from such Immensity is your unwillingness to trust grace, such an utterly
The goodness of God fills all the gaps of the universe, without discrimination
or preference. Like water, grace seeks the lowest place and there it pools. I would go so far as to call grace the primary revelation of the entire bible.
Many cultures have a beautiful tradition of saying a prayer before or after a
meal, expressing gratitude and asking for blessing. If we are accustomed to praying over our food, it may become a rote, almost thoughtless gesture. Yet
it is another opportunity to intentionally open ourselves to receive and
participate in grace. The food is already blessed simply by its existence.
God doesn’t require our words of thanks. But it does us good to “say grace,”
to verbally acknowledge the grace that is everywhere, even and especially in the giving of lives – plant and animal – for our sustenance.
If you have a practice of saying grace, bring greater awareness and presence
to it. Find or create a prayer that names your experience of grace. This
Hindu blessing is said before meals:
This ritual is One, The food is One. We who offer the food are One.
The fire of hunger is also One. All action is One. We who understand
this are One. (From World Prayers)
Indeed, it is all One in the immense and undiscriminating Grace that is God.
Open me to grace upon grace upon grace.
