Responding to the Hunger for God in Our Time
And did not Bernadette
keep repeating the Lady's name
lest she might forget what she could not understand
and what she had never heard before?
And did not the Lady
in her wisdom
know the revelation
would be the catalyst
for acceptance of Bernadette's accounts?
hear the prayers of one,
who - like Bernadette -
struggles to comprehend.
Intercede for our friends who are sick
and by the grace which infused your being,
carry our petitions to your Son
