Your Saints in Glory

At the momentYou lift Your saintly friends

From the Earth,

And plant them

In the Heaven of Your Being,

At that precious moment,

And by that fateful act,

You endow

The sons and daughters

Of Your Covenant,

Remaining in this world,

With more,

Not less.
When Your friends

Journey forth,

All the Earth

Is, henceforth, blessed,

And not, otherwise,

Disposed or deprived.
As Your Servants,

Enter Your Realms of Light,

Their charisms become infinite,

In their capacity to bless.
When the smallest of the small

Cries out,

In the name of Your forever Friends,

These other Christs

Answer with Your power to succor.
In the Now of Your Essence,

They share Your Glory.

In Heaven,

There is only one glory,

Which cannot increase.

United to You,

Who, are unchanging,

This new rain falls to

the Earth,

And it’s consenting

creatures, here,

Can and do change,

In the shower

Of Your abundant dew fall.
We are, henceforth,

The beneficiaries of new riches,

Streaming from Your Side,

The Door, by which Your saints

Entered Eternity.
Glory upon glory falls,

As golden droplets,

Upon the land

Of sunrise and sunset.
Your gifts do not cease

With the death

Of those who are Yours.

Heaven is united to earth,

And in the celebration

Of their new birth,

Rejoices.

The #Saints Crowned in Glory

The Saints are longing for us,
Longing that we share their glory.
No harm in such ambition,
Says Bernard.

This glory is to be spread abroad
By God’s sovereignty
And generosity.
This glory is  none other
Than the glory in which the Father
Robed His dying Son.

It is  now reflected in His Saints,
Who in life picked up their cross,
And followed  Him upon their knees.

The battle they fought on Earth now is ours.
They continue with us,
The Church Triumphant,
Pleading for the Church Militant.

Blessed are those who were poor in spirit,
Who were merciful, loving their enemies,
Who mourned and who were persecuted,
Who were pure of  heart,
And sought peace
Through the wood of the Cross.

Blessed are all those gathered
To the Father’s  bosom.
Blessed are they and generous,
Interceding for the saints,
As they look for us to follow in their steps.

Brothers and Sisters,
Radiant in glory,
Beam forth Christ.

All happiness to His Saints
Rewarded now and forever.
All glory to the Father,
The Son and the Holy Spirit.
Amen!
