Catholic Resource Network excerpt of "Lives of Saints"

The day of the Lord is coming
In these millenium ending times,
A mirror reflecting our shadow selves
By cosmic traces of creation light
To awaken us for insight journey
Into the cleansing nights
That we may find
The Infant of the age to come
Beyond the wake
Of sound and sight.

John R. Phalen, Christmas 1996 ©
One of many peoms written by our
beloved Interim Rector who cared
for us so tenderly for the past year!
John, we thank God for you and pray
much joy in your new endeavors!
I wait within the space between two realms
Threshold to new and to old
The boundary lines shift, quantum leap
across finite paradigms
my mind spans but cannot contain
dawning of glorious redemption to come
while ages of alienation long for His eyes
Rushing towards unfamiliar eras ancient,
different angle of a familiar ache
who can see the ache of waiting in lonely silence?
Who can know where the threads will lead,
to be woven into the tapestry of His glory
shining with radiant love
filling all eternity
Written in honor of John Phalen
