Radical Invitation for Communion (October 4 2009)

Christ, our Lord, invites us to his table

Who is this us?  All of us?

            The poor, the blind, the lame, the outcasts?

Christ, our Lord, invites us to his table

            The old, the young, the divorced, the married, the single?

Christ, our Lord, invites us to his table

The migrants, the homeless, the troubled, the unknowns?

Christ, our Lord, invites us to his table

Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Atheists?

Christ, our Lord, invites us to his table

The abused, the abusers, homosexuals, AIDS patients?

Christ, our Lord, invites us to his table

            Christ, our Lord, invites us to his table

                        to learn to live in peace together,

                        to learn to live repentant lives together,

                        to learn to love God and neighbor together.

            Christ, our Lord, invites us to his table.
