Mercy The Path

This poem came into being with the help from the Holy Spirit and praying to Mother Theresa.  I promised the Holy Spirit if he would help me that I would give him the credit for the poem.

Mercy The Path

The life of Christ is a journey
that presents to each of us an action
of laying down our life –
casting off cares and worries
to embrace our brothers and sisters
of this present world!

Our world is torn and bombarded with a shiftless
disregard for life!
A slow deliberate attempt to devalue humanity and remove
God’s loving Presence from the core of Life!

It is imperative that we answer Yes
to the challenge of action in love and mercy
to every human being
the Gospel of Christ is our mantra!

Christ’s mercy is life giving
constantly moving, shifting, molding, melting
and bringing together!
Christ is aware of all the changes – the silent ones
and the ones that clap with Thunder!

In our present Society we need to stand up for God
This action is a daring one
living out The Way, The Truth and The Life
will cost you dearly
This present world will reject you
and insult you because of me
keep going…keep extending mercy…keep
welcoming strangers…keep sharing and building up!

Help them to know me – love them as I love you!

My arms are always open…
