Default for your consideration to honor him

One day I saw an honorble man pray,
and here is what I think he said:

I, Your humble servant,
undeserving of the honor bestowed upon me,
pray, so that I may not falter
in ministering to Your faithful.

I ask You, Holy Spirit,
for guidance in these turbulent times,
so that with your inspiration
I will see everyone as one.

Just like You, respectfully
allowed Caesar to retain what was his,
I too, with contrite spirit,
will carry Your message throughout the world;
I too, will respect every thing
that belongs to our brethen,
for in the end, we, all, will share in Your glory.

"...re-unite all Christians and stress that sentiment alone was not enough. Concrete acts that enter souls and move consciences are needed...." (Read it somewhere didn't remember to note source.)

Red face Re: for your consideration to honor him

Dear Fellow Humans,
I do not know exactly how this sites work or the concept of 'threads' work; I posted this short poem I wrote to honor Pope John Paul II because I could sense such humaness and sincerity in this venerable man; I tried to capture the essence of his spirit, his mission and the mission of the Church, and would like to hear from anyone that has or will read the poem and know if you like it. Thank You.

I read it quickly. I'd like to reflect on it more later and perhaps give you a more thoughtful response, but it is very reverent and respectful.

God bless,
Bryan

Dear bscastro:
Thank you for your observation; I am someone that finds it easier to write poetically than prose; I will be happy to start a conversation at any level or point that you desire. I will be very honest with you, I have never done any kind of e-mail type of correspondence, etc. I don't remember how I came to the cite, or all its inner workings as far as: regular member, observing, etc. I would like to say that I was raised Catholic by a wonderful mother that became a widow with eight and one to be born and she was the most debout and faithful beliver that I "envy" her for having found or felt such love for the Lord, Jesus, and all things Catholic. I hope that some day I will adquire a more "acceptable or standard" way of looking or understanding faith/beliefs and "the estabishment". I don't know if we are supposed to ID ourselves, etc., but up front I can say that I will be 62 years old soon, and I am a gentleman. Thank you, please frogive me for any errors or improper e-mail etiquette, etc.
