Communion Of Saints In Advent

Communion Of Saints
by Sister Andrew-John

The men and women of my Kalendar
will share with me bits of their very bone
to keep me in their glow. I know they are
not constantly alert to me alone,
yet do I ask their prayers, and always find
great comfort in their powers to intercede
for me. I often wish to get the kind
of answers that are miracles indeed!

I know I paint them as they never were;
not folks at all, but statues. Oh, how few
they seem who let gut, heart, and will concur
with God, whose miracles became theirs, too.
A saint may be - or may become for me -
a mirror of the God I cannot see.
