Tonight was special. As my tenure at Saint George’s Church comes to a close, it was great to host, share poetry, and MC the Flushing Interfaith Council event where we not only showcased Saint George’s Church, and celebrated an Iftar, but more importantly about 70 people gathered from the Sikh community, Hindu community, Muslim community, Latter Day Saints Church community, Buddhist community, Bahai community, Unitarian community, Jewish community, Roman Catholic community, and other Christian communities. This is the future of religion, people of all religions coming together under one banner of Love. We had a beautiful and joyous time together! ❤️🙏🏽

[05/01/19]   For A New Beginning

In out-of-the-way places of the heart,
Where your thoughts never think to wander,
This beginning has been quietly forming,
Waiting until you were ready to emerge.

For a long time it has watched your desire,
Feeling the emptiness growing inside you,
Noticing how you willed yourself on,
Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.

It watched you play with the seduction of safety
And the gray promises that sameness whispered,
Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,
Wondered would you always live like this.

Then the delight, when your courage kindled,
And out you stepped onto new ground,
Your eyes young again with energy and dream,
A path of plenitude opening before you.

Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life’s desire.

Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you. - John O’Donohje

How Can I Ever Resist You? - Oh Dulce Cristo del Desierto. ❤️🙏🏽

Lenten Prayer and Art Photography
by The Rev. Wilfredo Benitez

O sweet Christ of the desert,
O sweet voice that speaks in silence to my soul,
Love ever present,
ever calling me,
How can I ever resist you?
To believe is no longer an act of my will,
It is you who comes and overwhelms me,
I have no resistance, no power, no will to say No.
I glimpse ever so lightly into your Eternity
And I know, I know, I know…
You are my beginning, my all, and my end.
O sweetness Divine in the darkness of my soul,
Come, come, come, and set me free,
Let me burst into your Infinite cloud of Unkowing,
Beauty unknowable, Splendor Eternal,
warm and enticing...
Wilfredo Benitez

Oh Dulce Cristo del Desierto
Poesia y Fotografia Por Un Servidor
Oh dulce Cristo del desierto,
¡Oh dulce voz que le habla en Silencio a mi alma!
Amor siempre presente
Nunca dejas de buscarme,
¿Cómo puedo resistir?
Creer ya no es un acto de mi voluntad.
Eres tú quien viene y me abruma.
No tengo resistencia, no tengo poder, no tengo ganas de decir No.
Percibo muy ligeramente tu Eternidad.
Y sé, sé, sé ...
Que Tú eres mi principio, mi todo, y mi final.
Oh dulzura Divina en la oscuridad de mi alma,
Ven, ven, ven, y libérame.
Déjame irrumpir en tu Nube Infinita del No Saber,
Esplendor cálido, irresistible ...

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) rebuts Republican claims that Democrats were in a partisan race to issue the first subpoena of the Trump Administration.
