Daniel Rowed A Boat Ashore, Hallelujah


of Pope Francis, it has been said,
“If he does not inspire you,
you’re not listening.”

a new version
of the old St. Francis
taking Christians
back where they once

will we
have ears to hear?
the courage?

i want to hear,
“Jesus never wanted
plots of land
to commemorate him,
or people to feel better
visiting them,
he wanted
and all the peoples of the world,
to walk their talk…and his:
feed the hungry
care for the sick
love thy neighbor,
thy neighbor being
all of us
and yes…
be good stewards
of this Earth.”
