Poem: At the Margins
Updated: Feb 20, 2019
Chris shares with us an original poem.
Here’s a little poem that came to me in prayer the other day in the Adoration Room. I hope it speaks to you in this Lenten season. God bless! (:
At the Margins
where the destitute gather, where the wounded suffer, where loneliness looms is where I am needed most.
where the hungry ache and pangs of heartbreaks; where the lost are forsaken is where my body’s broken.
where the cynics scorn and the hurt have grown forlorn; where anger, lust and human pride is where the Gospel should reside.
Yes, in the margins, at the fringes, the peripheries, the boundaries — will you be sent. For what good is almsgiving, fasting, and a comfortable Lent an example of selfless love of a contradictory cross sent from God above?
I am liminality. I am contradictory. I am Christ.
