A Prayer for When We Miss the Sacraments

Blog|The Rev. Canon Anna E. Rossi

We believe God shows up with outward, physical signs, not just spiritual “ether,” so church can be totally disorienting without the gathering, and without the symbols and mysteries of our tradition. Here’s how the Rev. Anna Rossi is praying about sacraments and absence:

O Christ, in the this time without water,
make us glisten with the baptism of rebirth;
without Bread, satisfy us with spiritual food;
without Wine, let us taste your sweet presence.
Nourish us in this Lenten desert
until at last we feast in the Heavenly Jerusalem.
