Об этой электронной книге

Though we are all sorry sinners, not worthy to sing God's praises, we must. The trick is to not let concerns for "Christian stealth" transform us into poets who end up serving a second master. "Platform" has its draw, but we can't let a wide concern for Catholic culture become no culture at all. We can't be so concerned with success that our poems lose their distinguishing content.
Jesus is Lord of all the earth.
Using a conversational style lifted from Collins and Coleridge, these poems seek to bring a world to light where He has always been alive and active, where he reigns in complete power, worthy of all our praise.
May He forgive us all our sins and change us in the twinkling of His eye before our journey ends.

    "Francis was so small

    it was almost like you could hold him

    in your hand; all of them—they seemed

    to act out their own stories, playing themselves:

    feeding the hungry, covering the sick.
