Iona Communion Service Liturgy

O hidden Mystery, Sun behind all suns,

Soul Behind all souls, in everything we touch,

In everyone we meet, your presence is ’round us

And we give thanks.

But when we have not touched, but trampled you in creation,

When we have not met but missed you in one another,

When we have not received but rejected you in the poor,

Forgive us.

One thought on “Iona Communion Service Liturgy

  1. That’s beautiful! It’s quite a thing to realize — and I mean deeply realize — that God’s “presence is ’round us.” You mean to say, I met or missed God this morning when I bought an almond croissant from a friendly young woman at a French bakery? Yes, even there, in an ordinary place, resides the “hidden Mystery.”
