|Chalice in the Snow by Hettienne|
I chose this poem yesterday before I read
on another blogging friend's post that
Joe Spadoman, the man of Peace,
has left his earthly body.
A more fitting poem I could not have chosen
in honour of his memory.
I did not know him that well, but I did get
to know him and his heartfelt posts
through the Twelve Days of Mary.
Mother of God of Akita,
Our Lady of the Snows
teach me to love the Holy One,
with utter abandon.
Teach me to pray as you pray,
without words or concepts to hinder my connection with
Teach me to serve the world as you do,
serenely smiling through tears of blood.
Let the peace you proclaim come at last,
blanketing the earth like snow,
permeating the thirsty land
and penetrating the roots of all nations,
so that a new season of goodness
may burst into bloom everywhere.
Mother of God Similar to Fire
