A Retreater's Poem and Litany

Bernhard_Plockhorst_-_Good_Shephard

So for the past few days, I’ve been away on retreat. It was an amazing, wonderful experience. I wanted to share a poem I wrote while I was praying at Adoration during the retreat.

Trust Fall

How did this happen?

My body was so weary

My spirit so weak

I just wanted to fall

And I wanted you to catch me

So I ask You to catch me

And into Your arms I fell

All of a sudden, I am awakened

Getting a second wind from the song of the Spirit

All of a sudden, I find myself strong

In your presence I find my life, my joy, my strength

Thank You for making me strong

 

Also, since the retreat ended on All Saints Day, I want to thank the saints in a litany of gratitude.

Saint Thomas Aquinas, thank you and pray for us!

Saint Bernadette, thank you and pray for us!

Saint Catherine of Bologna, thank you and pray for us!
