Lenten Sacrifice


What is the multitude of Thy sacrifices to Me? (Isaiah 1:11)

Sacrifice my playacting
Sacrifice my pleasure-craving
Sacrifice my solipsizing
Sacrifice my grudgeholding
Sacrifice my dissimulating
Sacrifice my hating
Sacrifice my forgettings
Sacrifice my politicizing
Sacrifice my gamesmaking
Sacrifice my discriminating
Sacrifice my gasbagging
Sacrifice my slouching
and what is left, O Lord?
