For those of us
Devoted to the person of Solanus
Animated by the spirituality of Solanus
Encouraged by the ministry of Solanus
This is a glorious feast at a decidedly inglorious time
A gracious ritual in the midst of much public incivility
And a festival that promotes charity, even communion
While our country as well as much of the world
Is battered with waves of prejudice
and riptides of polarization.
The Beauty of My Vision was Mesmerized by Mother Earth
This great mystery portrays Francis’ eyesight
The boundless loveliness of the Mother Earth (Ecology)
Mother earth is the thick green (wood forest) of hope
The thick green of Fonte Colombo
And La Foresta reflect the Silo of God’s gift
In this dense
The mother-earth spread-out
With her Massive generosity
Oh, what a magnificent Thick Green!
You are the graphic arts of God’s reservoir!
I am a leper
In the valley of Rivo Torto, Assisi
Francis became a living gospel
My treasurable leper’s colony,
My advance school of the gospel’s truth
Leper! My beauty! My love!
You are the gateway to embrace my Abba
The cradle of my wholesome identity and dignity
What was bitter is now sweeter
What was scary
Has now become the beauty of my embrace!
