To Live Gently in a Violent World

To live Gently in a violent world

To gaze continually on the 

Beatific Vision 

Amidst ugliness and suffering

To experientially know the

Height, Depth, Width and Length of

Divine Cruciform Love in a 

World drunk with power

To Love 

God, 

Others, 

Creation, 

and Self

With all my 

Heart, 

Soul, 

Mind 

Might

Even in the thick of spiritual warfare.

To find my home in the

Heart of God, in

The Secret Place of the 

Most High

To Abide under the

Shadow of the Almighty

To Live in the

Holiest of All

Wherein lies all of 

Life, Joy, Strength, Guidance 

– for there is a highway within – 

To Create artesian wells in the

Valley of Weeping, satiating

Like Rain in a drought

Earth and People weary of

War, 

Poverty, 

Sickness,

Injustice
