With a Grateful Heart We Thank the Lord

  • ****Updated 4/15/10****
  • For the birth of my newest great-niece, Jordyn.
  • -for the sacrament of confession and the grace it showers on us
  • -for the blessing of good and true friends
  • -for the beauty and truth of our beloved Catholic Church
  • -for the love of our extended family, and our parents who instilled in both of us the importance of the family bonds
  • -for our six wonderful blessings... Katie, Jessica, Ben, Rebecca, Thomas and Hannah, who add so much joy to our days
  • -for my husband, who provides,leads, instructs, guides and leads our family on our path to Heaven

Franciscan Poetry: by Dan Volpe, SFO

  • ~~~~~~~~~
  • +++CHASTITY+++
  • I'm married. Can I be chaste?
  • Desire for my spouse erased?
  • Love should move.
  • But faithfulness will prove
  • That lust by love is replaced.
  • ~~~~~~~~~
  • +++HUMILITY+++
  • Is humility lying down flat
  • On the floor by the door, like a mat?
  • I'm flawed, not floored
  • In the eyes of the Lord.
  • And He loves me in spite of that.
  • ~~~~~~~~~
  • +++ POVERTY+++
  • Should I go and buy more?
  • Pray, and ask, "What for?"
  • If reason be vain, then perhaps refrain.
  • If good, head out to the store.
