1. Wisely you have spoken. Yes, true warriors know their weapons. These are not tools that inflict pain and death, but thoughts, words and actions that cloak our neighbour with love and life.

    1. This is such a powerful comment. Thank you.

      If we can touch one person a day (beyond family), then that day was lived well, I reckon.

      All good wishes with your journey, Eric

    1. Very true. Many wise men and women (mortals all) have wielded these deceptively portent weapons – Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Mother Theresa to name a few…

    1. Thank you Jen.

      Many events prompted me to write this – including that Dress Code issue with my parish priest. It is a pity, he avoids me but I pray for him…perhaps one day, he might be touched by His Love.

      A glorious week to you too,

    1. And so He walks into the lion’s jaws again…and again He will shed for us…and again He shall prevail…

      Yearly, we are reminded but only to forget. How many more crucifixions, how much more suffering…before our hearts wet with His blood…

      Thank you Alethea. All good wishes for Holy Week – Eric

    1. Many are going through the final journey towards their Baptism this week. Some might suffer self doubts…This poem/prayer is also for them as it is for us…

  1. I have long believed that the opposite of love is not, as is generally held, hatred but fear. It is in fear that hate is rooted. Hate is like a dandelion; it will always regrow unless its root is completely removed.

    1. Dear Ben – I read your poem about Hatred, outstanding work. You are right, the opposite of Love is not Hate but Fear…and it roots in the fertile soil of ignorance.

      Peace, Eric

  2. Nodding; I’ll quote for Martin Luther King, Jr. “I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”

I like to hear your thoughts
