John Keble – February 24

poetry, prophecy

God’s voice of

what if, if we

do not change.

 

a blessing to

a nation, a call

to clarity and

faith.

Juan Diego – February 23

2.23.2015

Juan Diego you saw

the virgin on the

mountaintop

filling your basket

with roses in her

honor, showing

forth a new faith

for the people,

 

mystical, magical

she called you by

name, and you

in turn taught hers.

 

so the faith spreads.

the boy walks out

with suitcase in

red wheeler,

now full

sized

 

just like

him.

Molly Brant – February 21

2.21.2015

you honored the other

showing them not

disdain

 

but appreciation and

fulfillment in the

ways of Christ.

 

reacher across chasms

teacher of ways

forward

 

may we follow your

path, of care

with core.

A Lent Note – 2015

Friends,

I recommend to you a website called LentMadness.org … which does the NCAA one better by having a daily choice between two saints of the faith, working down through the “brackets” over the Lenten season for a final “Golden Halo” of 2015.

My own commitment this year is to follow these, make my vote each day, and to write a brief poem in honor of my personal choice for that day… hence Brendan and David Oakerhater thus far.

Lent Blessings to you and yours… and perhaps you might “join the madness.”

Len Freeman

David Oakerhater – February 20

2.20.2015

a captured warrior

your heart was

captured by

Christ

 

serving, caring,

helping, you

raised your

people.

 

may we hear

and learn

to follow.

Brendan – February 19

2.19.2015

my coracle is

so small, and

your great ocean

so deep

 

waves and ice

and lost souls

upon islands

 

Lord may I

find your tir’na nog

and never

sail away.
