The Word

 

What is the word planted

deep down your heart?

 

“Go!”              Pope Francis’s call to be missionary disciples

“Yes!”             Mary’s acceptance of motherhood and salvation

“Come!”         Mother Teresa’s mission to the poor

“For!”             Jesus’ life: “My body, my blood given for you”

 

Words don’t die when they are spoken.

No, when said they strive for incarnation.

 

Robert Morneau
