This is a poem that I wrote yesterday, a reflection of sorts on a passage I read from St. Peter Canisius. I am linking this poem to Angie Trafford’s Writing Wednesday (from last Wednesday), “sender.”
Love and perseverance are needed for peace:
On Earth troubles will never long cease,
So let love with courage be fortified,
Let peace not be too elusive nor hide
Its face from those who are its friends.
Peace, love, and perseverance God sends.
