"Abstraction" - Franciscan Poetry & Prose


Love is not a theory.
Love must be felt.
Proved in extremities of promise,
begotten, beyond understanding.

Love is not occasional.
Love must be eternal.
Fleshed in an innocent cry,
suddenly strong to conquer.

Love is not weak.
Love must be bold.
Gone forth in revealing stride,
filling faith with truth.

Love is not scared.
Love must be trust.
Stretched from side to side,
unbroken under obedience.

Love is not dead.
Love must arise.
Submerged in tearful wonders,
recreated by love.

– Fr. David Kaczmarek, T.O.R.
