Saint Jane Frances de Chantal
Sarah Jane Crespo

PLOGS BELOW (JML's Poetic Commentary)

“We should go to prayer with deep humility
and an awareness of our nothingness. We must
invoke the help of the Holy Spirit and that of our
good angel, and then remain still in God’s presence,
full of faith that he is more in us than we are in
ourselves.” St. Jane Frances de Chantal, Religious

Something Borrowed

To say commitment is a marriage
Falls short of loving life

And to wonder which is worse
The gossip or the strife

As a child watching
It all made perfect sense

As sacred as a baptism
The bonding of my first rinse

And a widow in need
Seeking absolution for

Desiring her late spouse
Over her unborn

What is greed?
We may never know--

But forms forgiveness brings
Opportunes me grace to sing

As I was given a living version
Of the epistles known as Pauline

CHEERS to Mamme!
