fourth thursday in lent

“ Do not hide your face from me.
Do not turn your servant away in anger,
    you who have been my help.
Do not cast me off, do not forsake me,
    O God of my salvation!”  Psalm 27:9

in the compassionate eyes
of the nurse behind
the protective mask;
in the young person
who knocks on the door
asking what they can bring us;
in the kids across the street
who sit on their porches
playing music for their
neighbors . . .

we see your face!
