I had lunch yesterday with an old friend
I haven't seen in quite a while.
Immediate connections were made: tied together
by a shared history of memories, joys and sorrows...
In no time at all it seemed that no time had passed
since "back in the day."
Yesteryear's best survives as a gift
while mercy takes care of the rest...
You and I have connections that link us, Lord:
a history of sharing my burdens and joys;
we have memories in common, you know them all:
the good and the bad, the forgiven and gone...
So, let's have lunch, Lord - just you and me:
a sandwich, a coffee, some chips and an apple;
let's reconnect and get back together
and pick up where we left off...
If I make the time and the place to meet you
I know you'll be there before I arrive;
we'll remember the best of what's made us friends
and let mercy take care of the rest...

I was a student in a program with little tolerance for Faith or aspirations of virtue beyond artsy experimentation, obscurity and conflict, for the sake of shock value. There were consecutive all-night-ers and professors who took far too much pleasure in announcing “triple f minus” for students’ marks, with not …

My friend, Patrice, of Spiritual Woman and Catholic Lane requested that I review her brand new, hot off the press, The Catholic Baby Name Book, published by Ave Maria Press. To say I am honored is an understatement. I have called you by name and you are mine. ~ Isaiah …
