Oct 14: Day by Day with Father Bill

WEDNESDAY OF THE TWENTY-EIGHTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME

‘Tis the gift by Padraig O Tuama

‘Tis the gift to be gentle
With your self at the end
of a day when you’ve given
of a day when you’re spent.
To re-create, to breathe
and to rest
and to treat your own self
as your own
welcome guest

When hospitality’s in place
you’ll be kinder
to your self
and less inclined to haste.

You’ll turn
and you’ll fall
and you’ll find
that you’ll say

welcome to the night
and
welcome to the day.

If poetry touches your soul, you may want to dig deeper into the work of the Irish poet, Padraig O Tuama. His podcast “Poetry Unbound” is inspiring!
