suspended by two realities:
tell us stories
Isaac and Jacob.
Tell us how
the news to Joseph.
Tell us how they mocked
your immaculate conception.
Tell us of Jesus'
human and divine,
Mother of disciples,
teach us how to pray,
how to nurture God,
how to live the Christian life,
even when we are torn
How to love,
even when we are hated
robed in righteousness,
mourn with us.
Mother of kings,
Matriarch of heaven,
intercede for us.
