View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Mea Culpa Before The Crucifix

Dear Lord,
Help me always to remember
that each time I speak in anger
each time I respond with sarcasm
each time I judge another's heart and mind
each time I emphasize other's blemishes
I drive the nails deeper
into Your Holy Flesh
I press the thorns
further into Your Holy Head
I add another burden
for You to bear
upon the Cross.
