God Can Make It from Nothing

God can make it from nothing.
No Time, no Space, no place!
With a word,
All suns are born in His Light.

Beauty of the Supreme Being,
Arrayed in all that is,
Ethereal, everywhere and near,
Existence, itself.

Living, thinking, Eternal Being,
Unseen, untouchable,
Existing of Yourself,
Limitless, within and without.

Ocean of omnipotence,
Alive in Your Living,
Living in minuscule, and mighty,
Nothing without you.

Existence,
Beyond of all that is.
The world exists without me,
But not without You.

I am called,
As You called Creation into being.
The sticks and stones of creation,
Obey Your every whim and command.

Man, alone, can say “NO”.
Place “YES” in my heart,
That I may not thwart,
But with creation play my part.

All that is,
Is of Thee,
Infinite in all Your Perfections.
My Loving Mystery.

God, You can make it from nothing,
Make of me a Son,
A light after the long Night,
Knowing in loving, eternal delight.

O Eternal Spring

O Eternal Spring
O sweet refreshment of my soul
Look on me
And draw me ever nearer Thee.

In the furnace of Your Heart
Make me like unto Thee,
That my mortal frame
May melt and meld,
To be of Thee, eternally.

A Blessing for New Life

All Holy, Almighty, Jesus, Purest Heart,
Look upon the sweet beings, God’s good creations,
Nestled in the sanctity of human wombs.
Encircle the world through these little ones,
With Triune Love.

Bless Mother Eve with the “Fiat” grace of Mother Mary,
To bring forth a generation wed to Your Holy Will,
Peacemakers, pious through obedience,
Loving by Your Spirit,
Who proceeds from the Father and the Son.

May these, as Children of the Light, recognize You,
From their coming forth into a new day,
Giving witness, and preparing Your Way,
As John (blessed in his mother’s womb).

Give dominion to these,
As You did the First Adam,
To reclaim and grace Your Good Earth.
