SOULFUL HYMN

Black Swans @Paul

Are we not sons and daughters of one Father?

May this hymn by Josiah Conders (1789-1855)

encourage what it suggests

“To Be Ordered’

“In Christ there is no east or west,

In him no south or north;

But one great fellowship of love

Throughout the whole wide earth.

*

Join hands, then, members of the faith,

Whate-er your race may be!

Who serves my Father as his child

All Christly souls are one in him

Throughout the whole wide earth.”

*

May this hymn ‘To Be Ordered’ stand as a goodly path to follow.

Happy Tuesday!

Poem – Only Breath

“Not Christian or Jew or Muslin, not Hindu, Buddhist, Sufi or Zen.  Not any religion or cultural system.  I am not from the East or the West, not out of the ocean or up from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not composed of elements at all.

I do not exist, am not an entity in this world or the next, did not descend from Adam or Eve or any origin story.  My place is placeless, a trace of the traceless.  Neither body or soul.

I belong to the beloved, have seen the two worlds as one and that one call to and know, first, last, outer, inner, only that breath breathing human being.”

“There is a way between voice and presence where information flows.

In disciplined silence it opens.

With wandering talk it closes.”

IMMACULATE HEART

Mary by Stephen B. Whatley

A celebration of Mary with her son Jesus to effect salvation history

“My heart will rejoice in your salvation.

I will sing to the Lord who has been bountiful with me.”

Psalm 13 12-6

DIVINE MERCY

Divine Mercy

On February 22, 1931, according to Saint Faustina’s Diary entry 699, Jesus made a special promise to her, which was consecrated to the whole world on April 4, 1937:

“My daughter, tell the whole world about my inconceivable mercy.  I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge for all souls, and especially for poor sinners.  I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those who approach the fount of My Mercy.”

In 2000, Pope John Paul II promulgated this Divine Mercy devotion to be celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter (He died on Divine Mercy Sunday 2005).

Jesus thus promises “whoever approaches the fount of Life on this day will be granted complete forgiveness of sins and punishment.”

Today, may we all ‘taste and see the goodness’ of God’s Divine Mercy.
