O Splendid Truth, Our Father

Jesus, You didn”t say,
“Pretend My Father
Is your father.”
Or, “Imagine, if my Father
Were your father.”

No! Your prayer revealed
God as our Father.
What Love!
What Mystery!
What Splendid Truth!

Mary, the Violin

Mary, Virgin, Mother of God,
The perfectly fashioned,
And tuned instrument,
As a violin,
In the hands of God,
As He plays His music
For the Son.
