MY BOOK
"Reply to Once a Catholic"










"Can anything make me stop loving you?"
God asks.

"Watch me speak your language,
sleep on your earth
and feel your hurts.
Behold
the maker of sight and sound
as he sneezes, coughs, and blows his nose.

You wonder if I understand how you feel?

Look into the dancing eyes of the kid in Nazareth;
that's God walking to school.
Ponder the toddler at Mary's table;
that's God spilling his milk.

"You wonder how long my love will last?

Find your answer on
a splintered cross, on a craggy hill.


That's me
you see up there,
your maker, your God,
nail-stabbed and bleeding.
Covered in spit and sin-soaked.
That's your sin I'm feeling.
That's your death I'm dying.
That's your resurrection I'm living.
That's how much
I love you!"

Yes, God so loved the world
that He gave his only Son,
that whoever believes in Him may not die
but may have eternal life.

THIS CHILD!

Can we imagine
how Mary felt
knowing she was holding
God
in her arms?
And, can we we imagine
her tenderly wiping away His tears?

Can we imagine
her feeding, bathing and dressing Him?
Can we imagine
her excitement when He got His first tooth,
said His first word,
and took His first step?

Can we imagine
how proud she was of Him
when He stacked His first building blocks,
threw His first rock and
brought home His first fish?

We might wonder,
if perhaps even then,
He imagined how when He grew up
He would build a church and
put a fisherman in charge!

ST. AUGUSTINE PRAYER

Lord Jesus,
let me know myself;
let me know You,
And desire nothing else but You.
Let me hate myself and love You,
And do all things for Your sake.
Let me humble myself and exalt You,
And think of nothing else but You.
Let me die to myself and live in You,
And take whatever happens as coming from You.
Let me forsake myself and walk after You,
And ever desire to follow You.
Let me flee from myself and turn to You,
that so I may merit to be defended by You.
Let me fear for myself, let me fear You,
And be among those that are chosen by You.
Let me distrust myself and trust in You,
And ever obey for the love of You.
Let me cleave to nothing but You,
And ever be poor because of You.
Look upon me that I may love You,
Call me, that I may see You,
And forever possess You,
for all eternity.
Amen.


"JESUS"
