A Hymn to Providence…

He said to (his) disciples, “Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life and what you will eat, or about your life and what you will eat, or about your body and what you will wear. For life is more than food and the body more than clothing. Notice the ravens: they do not sow or reap; they have neither storehouse nor barn, yet God feeds them. How much more important are you than birds!” (Lk 12:22-24)

“There was small mention of their poverty, but much about the confidence of Mother Gamelin in the Providence of God and He had never failed the community.” “Table of the King”. Katherine Burton. McMullen Books, New York, 1952. p166.

God’s “big and bounteous Providence”…
has never failed me… a group of intrepid
travelers… Sisters… have been
beside me: we, mystics
of a universe of caring…
sharing this
with our neighbors. The nature
of the immenseness
shown in the Cosmos
(a reflection of God’s glory–
to bring to the attention
of the doubting scientists…
now beginning to understand
what IS:
the Divine Mind
behind all order,
as well as the “chaos”–
as such,
“perceived” by His creatures
in their limitedness.)

Take me with you, I plead…
Surely there is room for one more–
in the grand scheme of things…
He counts the very hairs on our heads
and has known us from the womb!
We, sisters,
join all the others
placed within proximity
for reasons sometimes unknown
in the beginning (by us),
to proclaim the “overabundance”
returned in this very age–
and eternal life in the age to come
to all humankind.
Providence will provide
the time,
for the transformation
of the Earth
into the New Jerusalem.
