Father, Mother, God

I received this wonderful poem by Maya Angelou from Sr. Mary Frances Reis, VHM, a long time friend, in her Christmas Letter. It is beautiful and I would love to share it with everyone...

Father, Mother, God

Thank you for you presence
during the hard and mean days.
For then we have you to lean upon.

Thank you for your presence
during the bright and sunny days,
for then we can share that which we have
with those who have less.

And thank you for your presence
during the Holy Days, for then we are
able to celebrate you and our families
and our friends.

For those who have no voice,
we ask you to speak.

For those who feel unworthy,
we ask you to pour your love
out in waterfalls of tenderness.

For those who live in pain,
we ask you to bathe them in
the river of your healing.

For those who are lonely,
we ask you to keep them company.

For those who are depressed,
we ask you to shower upon them
the light of hope.

Dear Creator, You, the borderless
sea of substance, we ask you to give to all the
world that which we need the most - Peace.
