A cry from the heart of Mary.
A call to hear the pain
Of the hearts of millions
Our very own sisters and brothers too.
Women, children they cry.
Can we listen? dare we listen?
Can they touch our hearts?
Lead us out beyond our petty cares.
The downtrodden and impoverished
These must pull our hearts.
Till all we thought we knew before,
Now turns us full circle,
To see the past with thanks, and
Standing in this precious moment now
With thoughtful, pondering hearts.
Dare we glimpse the future
Bringing us to this new dawn,
A different way - and
Hold the hands of those abused,
Embrace them as our sisters now
Hold them in the warm embrace
Of visitation moment,
Where new life stirs.
To set them free and feel new life again,
And in the freeing and the opening,
we can change our world.
just for a while and know,
The founding charism
Tingle in our every cell & bones,
and breathe new life in all of us,
and feel the heart of Mary,
throb in our very souls,
at each new day a call.
Where love & misery meet,
and we become life bearers of compassion,
from deep within the heart of God”
Sr. Mary O’ Malley, MMM
