(memorial to French priest Fr. Jacques Hamel murdered by Isis July, 2016)
He awoke to a light meal
Another chance to serve the morning Mass
Only a stand-in.
Why ask me? I’m old. I’m tired.
But oh! The joy of the Elements!
The sharing, consuming, becoming
Our Lord Christ
In such a world.
My Hamel, today is your crowning day!
Your aching bones will serve you well
Your weary mind will leap with litany
Bless My people, they are weary, too.
Remember the days I have given you
The thousands of faces, the millions of prayers
I know them, each one.
Hamel smiles, feels vigor, virtue
Hamel bows his hoary head,
This Great Christ would pat his shoulder,
Hold his heart
For such a day.
So, today, My Hamel, I grant you
Strength of spirit
This your crowning Mass,
Here’s a twinkle for your eyes,
Here’s the breath for the chants
Your next song will be with My angels.
I grant you joy as you kneel,
You will awake in My arms
For My love never fails.
Your enemies, My enemies
Leer, Hamel, at your old face
But they have seen the face of God.
Your crown awaits.
