After a fourteen-month mission, Marian West, is now being “sent into the world to spread the Good News of Compassion” by her community and friends in Brooklyn. Enjoy this beautiful poem she wrote as a way of giving thanks to those who where given her by the Lord during her ministry.
Thank you for being my masters of love,
Thank you for pointing my eyes to above,
Thank you for opening wide your door
to welcome us in, all your heart outpoured.
Thank you for praying not “Why me?” but “Take me!”
Thank you for proclaiming “I live for Him who made me!”
You are the Face and the Heart of Christ;
You bring back the smile and make sense of life;
You teach us to stand in hope near the Cross,
You’re the hundredfold treasure – the rest I count as loss.
From the Heart’s Home Family I received you gratuitously;
Now our friendship lives on through my compassionate community.
I’ve been yours for a time and yours I’ll always be:
Our visits now, will be in the Heart of Mother Mary!
“Each encounter is a miracle”
Each friendship pure gift,
In hidden wonders & treasures – in YOU- He’s made me rich!
Thank you, God bless you, See you in the Manger and the Eucharist.
