Wednesday October 28 “My life overflows with Death’s toll”
Ordinarily, when people come to the Jesuit Residence for a few days of stillness and prayer, the house welcomes them with just that, stillness and hospitality that makes a place for prayer. These last weeks, with heavy machinery digging out the space for UDM’s new main entrance, one of our prayer guests found stillness anyway. S/he wrote this poem to remember a morning’s prayer, when s/he tasted fatigue and the grief from several deaths that came too close in time and very close in the soul.
Right here on McNichols Road, s/he tasted grace. Best to read the poem out loud.
Enjoy today’s remnants of H Patricia soaking the earth.
