NOVENA TO THE SACRED HEART
"Dear Heart of Jesus, in the past I have asked for many favours.
This time I ask you for a very special one. (mention favour)
Take it, dear Heart of Jesus, and place it within your broken heart
where your Father sees it. Then in His merciful eyes it will become
your favour and not mine. Amen."
Say this prayer for three days, promise publication and favour will be
Never known to fail. S.C.
(by Clare Kelly)
In her running,
Pulled to the fall of the clay
By the sticky wetness,
Unsure of her
Footing in the bleak dawn.
The new born lay
Before the fussing mother.
She felt for pulse,
Soaring between the
Two worlds, as the
Falcon banks in the wind.
Talking in low soft tones,
She cleared the
Breathed her own
Breath down the
Life path, the white
Breath of healing.
The juices of birthing
Clung to her cold fingers,
She welcomed their warmth.
The lamb snorted,
Shook its head,
Against sodden cheeks,
The mother, stood,
Stared, stamped her foot,
Instinct told her
Move off watch.
The ewe nudged her baby
Gently with her nose,
Muttering tender noises,
Poised in the vision
Of her great deed,
Again, anxious, she
Moved around the lamb.
In the circle of life,
Creating sacred space
For her child.

Is warm and fair
And berries open
Hips and haws
With crimson glow
Nuts are ripening
Skies are getting
