Featured Poetry: The Sacraments

I once spoke to my friend, an old squirrel, about the Sacraments –

he got so excited

and ran into a hollow in his tree and came

back holding some acorns, an owl feather,

and a ribbon he had found.

And I just smiled and said, “Yes, dear,

you understand:

everything imparts

His grace.”

(Francis of Assisi – taken from Love Poems From God by Daniel Ladinsky)
