The Company of Friends

I walk in the company of saints.

Faith opens my heart revealing Truth,
As Eucharist brings enlightenment.

Hope opens my eyes to gaze on Past
And throws light upon the future.

With Jesus in the fore,
My saints say, “Follow me.”

Holy friends, pray for me.

Heavenward

Heavenward

As dust upon the Wind,
I am drawn upon a breeze of Spirit,
To realms above the world and worldly.

Higher, ever higher,
I implore,
Detach me for the heavenly.

Sweet Sustenance,
Food for my soul,
As You lift me,
You transform and sustain me.

I am of Earth,
But created for You and Your Heaven,
In Eucharist,
I become all gratitude and thanksgiving.

I Believe

I Believe

You are here, with me, within me,
Your indwelling Spirit alive,
For the life of me.

You give Your Holy Life to my soul.
Raising nature above the world
To breathe with Your Spirit.

I am in You, for You.
I am Yours.
May Your Heart ever hold me fast.

You Looked Down

You looked down
From Your Cross
To behold faithfulness.
There stood Your Mother.

You beheld her look of grief,
Her suffering Your pain.
You wed it
To Your Own,
Presenting all
Before Our Father’s holy throne.
