The Divine Call

The following is a poem by one of my Phatmass friends, which she wrote before entering the convent. She does an excellent job of summarizing her longing for Christ, and to belong to Him as His bride. She was kind enough to allow me to post it here. I hope you enjoy it.

The Divine Call

No one...

no one, Lord

could occupy the place

that You hold

in my heart!

You captivate me,

Draw me,

Allure me...

We are one

You and I,

Your Heart draws me

to dedicate my life, my being

my every breath

to You.

This holy longing

which fills my soul,

gives me the words,

the voice to speak

When the unvierse seems to stop

So that I may respond in

Affirmation to You call.
