Today, let’s together reflect with this poem called “When This Ends”.
Today we share this poem by Sister Marichui Bringas for our daily reflection.
Today, Friday, we invite you to reflect through Mary Oliver’s poem, “I worried”.

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:
Today, we’re invited to reflect joined as a community with this poem.
During these challenging and stressful days, we’re invited to pause in prayer and reflection for ourselves, our community, our city, country and our world. Each day you will be sent an invitation to visit this page to read a prayer, read a story, good news, signs of hope, art, music … all to gather our energy and send it out to a fearful and hurting world.
Rebellions are strange and strange not cheap.
I mean you know the one we had in Ireland
Just half a century ago.
Nobody ever told me about all the things
that happen to you when you are 83 or on the way.
You took me in all green and young and ignorant and eager 40 years ago.
I feel one with you, many and varied, long short, fat thin, silent talkative,
faraway near, prayerful, tired, energetic, always with eyes on the holy goal and wanting to be there.
