Liminal Space

Can you pray for me,
Stay awake for me,
Remain here, and
Watch over me?


Can you see the Altar bare,
Let go of wondering where
The pretty things went
While I carry this cross for you?


Can you let go of what you need
Turn your focus unto me,
Hear my fervent pleas
From the garden of Gethsemane?


Will you take this bread,
Drink this wine
And every single time
Receive this grace
In remembrance of me?


Can you be bereft of me
believe in me
For through brief emptiness
you will come to be free?


Will you pray for me
Stay awake with me
Remain here, and
Watch over me?


While my fear lets go
My truth takes hold
As hammers against nails
Remind me
Whose I am
Why I am
And show you all of this
Is all about
Love.

The vigil is a highly spiritual experience. The sanctuary is essentially empty, barren of trappings and utterly silent. Without the usual distractions, one is left with peace and clarity in prayer. There is the sense of being present in support of Jesus in his loneliest and saddest time. I highly recommend it.
