Sr. Joan Kerley, FMSJ
This is the most fundamental thing
I’ve learned about our relationship to God:
That everything is gift
And it’s all in the waiting,
Waiting in the deep, mysterious well of silence
Until the living spring begins to flow anew.
This is the Spring who will quench our thirst,
Water our barren deserts,
Burst forth from within us,
Tinged with blood and pain,
To give birth to eternal life.
This is the Eternal Spring of Life
Who dwells deeply, mystically within.
