Mercy

April 23, 2017

A beautiful wisdom poem from my dear Sister Cheryl Anne

her singing heart

The Narrow Way
is the Wideness of God’s Mercy

A Love so broad and free
many miss It for Its too obvious embrace

How tragically we duck and dodge
the sweet simplicity of grace

Making lesser gods
of intellect and reason

Committing treason against
the Sacred Heart of All That Is

Through unyielding
doctrine and dogma

To do justice, to love mercy, to walk humbly
This, the testament of old

To love one another as we are loved
This, the testament of the One Who Is Love

All the goodness we receive and give
The only power by which we live

The Great Spirit
This Encompassing Love

Who smiles and shrugs
at our smug certainties

Who is Mother, Father, Sister, Brother,
Friend and Lover, Child of us all

The Narrow Way
is the Wideness of God’s Mercy

We find the Way, who are willing
to be loving, light, and small.
