House of God, Door to Heaven

Domus Dei et Porta Coeli

(House of God, Door to Heaven)


What if we were aware,

that we are a Temple of the Holy Spirit,

the Body of Christ, the House of God?


What if we lived our lives as if

it were a doorway to Heaven?

What if we perceived your Face

in each moment of grace?


How small our problems might seem,

in the shadow of your infinite Horizon.

Our weaknesses and doubts would crumble,

in the vast ocean of your Divinity.


Everything would be the same,

Yet different.

Changed by the knowing

of the Sacrament of each present moment.
