Prayer To St. Francis - Poem by Steven Federle

'The eyes of the saint make all beauty holy and the hands of the saint consecrate everything they touch.' Thomas Merton

Look at me, O Saint,
sagging skin,
thinning hair, face
lined with roads
too far traveled.

Can you see
in me God's
beauty?

Then touch me!

O take into
your holy palms
my living heart.
Fill me with desire!

Make of me
a holy psalm,
consecrated host,
eternal fire.
