God, Hear Our Cry
Where are you God? Can you stand in this place Can you weep with us? Will you cradle the wounded support the broken?
Where are you God? Can you feel the pain of this moment? Can you hear the grief of this place and the distress of these people? Will you hold their terror? and stay with them.
Will your tears mingle with ours as you hear the cry of our hearts? Will you tend our hope shattered at this moment? Will you give solace to the dying And comfort to the brokenhearted?
Show us your presence O God! Show us that you are in our midst. Show us we are not alone.
(From the Sisters of St Joseph website)
Don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.
“What moves men of genius, or rather what inspires their work, is not new ideas, but their obsession with the idea that what has already been said is still not enough.”
