Lent Always Takes Us


68 Pages


The whole of our lives are a sort of glorious Lent. And so it is in these poems. Most of this book borrows from Bly, who in his poems beautifully turns the Islamic ghazal form to his own ends. These poems, though, try to give all the glory to Jesus Christ, who is the reason why we live and breathe. So often, it seems, contemporary Catholic poets are afraid to give up a secular perspective. This is odd, really, since that point of view will not take us into heaven. In any case, may our Lord forgive us all our stupidity and sins; may the Holy Spirit help us to walk and talk with Jesus, who is Life itself.
