One small voice:
It doesn’t have to be the blue iris,
it could be weeds in a vacant lot,
or a few small stones; just pay
attention, then patch a few words
together and don’t try to make
them elaborate, this isn’t a
contest but the doorway into
thanks and a silence in which
another voice may speak.
Do you have room in your house?
Reclaiming the freshness of the Gospels
Bringing the poor to the centre
Going to where the need is greatest
Creating Oneness across borders…Let us
you pray, go into your inner room,
and when you have shut your
door…” Matt 6:6
For our world…healing and hope.
For our Pope Francis and the
Church…courage and strength.
For our Institute…life
For all making vows and
O God who makes all things new,
new stars, new dust, new life; take
my heart, every hardened edge and
measured beat, and create
something new in me. I need your
newness, God, the rough parts of me
made smooth; the stagnant, stirred;
the stuck freed; the unkind forgiven.
And then, by the power of your
Spirit, I need to be turned toward
Love again. (P.C. Hawkins)
