Wide as the World

by Sr. Pat McGraw, icm

Wide as the World

WIDE AS THE WORLD

 

The God-Presence wide as the World

   Many features, many hues, many tempos,

        Each a person of worth.

 

Many languages, many customs, many expressions of life.

Many the God revelation!

 

The call - as wide as the suffering world.

Solidarity with suffering peoples,

   poverty, illiteracy, injustices,

      humanity's burden

    met with encouragement, empowerment,

ICM engendered.

 

Living the passion anew,

   Sharing the struggle of a people,

        bearing the miseries, crying a tear,

Discovering God's veiled weakness

   Imparting hope in the hopelessness, 

crossing of borders - generosity of love sacrificed;

Compassionate embrace of the wounded world;

Marvelous exchange of graces given and received.

 

The mission - Good News yet unborn;

   Mission humbled - by the resilience of the poor.

   Mission awed - God's touch through ICMs.

   Mission renewed - the horizon beckons urgency:

      God's peoples' pleas resound;

      God's re-creation, still undone,

Missionary zeal ignites in a blaze!
