To Bless the Space Between Us

Bridget Flood from the Incarnate Word Foundation suggested this poem to share with our community saying: As I talk with my family, my neighbors, our Sisters and my friends, I’m profoundly moved by the impact of current events on every one of us. We must not lose hope. John O’Donohue, a favorite Irish poet of mine, offers us these inspiring words:

To Bless the Space Between Us

This is the time to be slow,
lie low to the wall
until the bitter weather passes.

Try, as best you can, not to let
the wire brush of doubt
scrape from your heart
all sense of yourself
and your hesitant light.

If you remain generous,
time will come good;
and you will find your feet
again on fresh pastures of promise,
where the air will be kind
and blushed with beginning.


This Friday we will be broadcasting San Antonians through a Musical Lens – a collaboration with photographer/videographer Natalia Sun. They are available at – just press play!
