Pilgrim’s Passage – Poetry for Lent



"Nothing, how little so ever it be, if it is suffered for God's sake, can pass without merit in the sight of God." ~Thomas a Kempis

Pilgrim’s Passage

I go without
To go within
The passage, a pace of mysteries
First a sacred bow
Leads to a sacred now
A pilgrim focused on discovery
On Knowing

I find an undiscovered place
A dwelling that fits the pilgrim in me
Here, with Him, My God
Is the beginning of many such journeys
Set free, not to settle, no
For how would that suit a pilgrim?
Set free to remain in His love
