POETRY By Fr. Pedro Arrupe, S.J.

Fall in Love – Nothing is more practical than finding God, than falling in love in a quiet absolute, final way.  What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything.

It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, whom you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.

Fall in Love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.

ARTFUL WRITING

I smile every time I see this Swiss painting greeting me along the wall as I step up into the kitchen to make coffee. I feel as if the young boy is Jesus holding me tenderly.  My first chatter is with him.

HAIKU

Tucked in your elbow

not knowing how the day will end

You are my surrender

GOOD SUNDAY’S AFFIRMATION

This morning, I observed a majestic woodpecker as he pecked climbing up one of the trees in the yard…I watched his every movement in silence as he placed a warm smile on my face.

Birds are indeed God’s spiritual messengers to us earthlings below.  With their sacred wings they dart through the fresh air seeding inspirations from the heavens.  What a marvelous way to begin any day.

May this new week bestow marvelous wonders on you.
