Human Means To Be Saint, - Poem by Liza Sud

Human means to be saint,
Not just to make mistakes,
But we spoiled our children
And have too few heroes.

Weakness is sub-normal.
Weakness is –yes – human,
But call for Christ – call Him! –
And you’ll become pure!

    In this poem you state the spiritual goal and then call upon Christ to fulfil it for you. Hindus call this belief
    bhakti - the mystical love between a god and worshiper. This is spelled out in the Bhagavad Gita which was written about the time of the Gospels, you could say Jesus and the soul is bhakti, and the Gita is a New Testament in Hinduism. I say these things because I am a multi-faith believer. A given religion can be alone the center of your life or you can blend many together. But we want to affirm our human unity. What we don't want are religious wars like the Thirty Years War in 16th century. Russia was NOT involved in that slaughter of Christians by Christians.I wrote JOHN OF KRONSTADT to show the beauty and truth of this saint you reveled to me. He was and is a shining light of the goodness a human being can achieve. He gives people of every faith
    a model to imitate.
