With my own priestly gifts squandered, those of the ordinary priesthood which, according to the teachings of the Catholic Church, all the baptized lay members possess, for nearly thirty years I too was complicit and “in sin” with the sins that plague our society today. The mid twentieth century’s ‘sexual revolution’ left very few souls untouched. Our seminaries, by no means, have survived the assault either. The result is felt worldwide: the sexual revolution has left a wake of casualties. Rather than rashly demanding angrily for the turning over and the punishment of this or that scoundrel, although, indeed justice is demanded to the victims and the Church, a more merciful approach would follow an examination of our own lives. Is it I? How might we have played a part; allowing unabated, this sub-culture to flourish and become mainstream? Pornography, cohabitation, fornication, contraception, infidelity, adultery, abortion, divorce, same-sex marriage... Wrong after wrong, unchallenged and viewed with indifference or worse, in a spirit of relativism, I believe, makes one complicit to the sin and scandal the Catholic Church once again faces, head on. It would be far more productive to join together, all taking responsibility for one’s own sinfulness, repent, and make a resolve to each do our part to become a better, more righteous culture. The poem is written ‘ad ovo,’ from the beginning and in chronological order from the beginning of existence to the present, with a caesura, utilized through a colon, one per stanza, to signify a significant passing of time between the events before and after the colon. The Church teaches that the Sacrament of the Eucharist is valid, ex opere operato, “by the very fact of the action’s being performed” regardless the state of sanctity of the human minister, the priest. We will continue to have failures and betrayals; Judas Iscariot was the guarantor of that - but when we do, it’s comforting to remember that which our Lord took up on the Cross with him. No, not our successes; Jesus died on the Cross after taking our sins upon himself and having them nailed to the Cross along with his body. His love for us is inexhaustible... #herheartpoetry #catholics #prayer #catholicpoet #wordsofwisdom #garyedwardgeraci #catholic #poets #writing #christianpoet #poetsofinstagram #poetrycommunity #poetryslam #christian #poeticjustice #poetrycommunityofinstagram #writersofinstagram #poems #catholicyouth #poemsporn #blessedvirginmary #poemsofig #catholicchurch #poem #catholicism #blessed #cathedral #prayers #booklovers #poemaday

Of all the things that we so gladly and willingly talk about, how many times are we willing to talk about our struggles? About our failures? Why don't we talk about the times that we've fallen down and have let ourselves down? Why have we made this world so one dimensional? Why is only happiness beautiful? Why is only courage magnificent? What about the people that are trying? What about those that didn't end their lives but are still crying? Why aren't we as open to talk about pain and hurt ? Why can't we lend an open ear and a warm heart to someone that has a breaking heart? Maybe, we need to shift our focus from the concept of a perfect and happy life to the sad and shattering reality. And as per the seemingly endless limits of this universe, pain is an endless part of our lives. Just like people fall beautifully in love, they are very likely to hit the rock bottom and maybe get hurt and then give up. Love is beautiful, but love hurts us too. This life is amazing but it can be pretty harsh on us too. This universe is full of magic and wonder but at times it can unfortunately betray our faith and beliefs too. But as long as we share our hearts with one another and talk about what aches us openly, we shall never be broken alone, we shall never be infinitely lonely. So the next time that you get hurt or feel sad, don't hesitate in painting your words on the canvas of this life. For art will always be valued even if the canvas is a little too torn, even if we don't always see a beautiful dancing rainbow, even if the universe breaks and begins pouring upon us. There's a lot more to this life than petty perfection, there's a lot more of your heart that needs to be heard. Let's start being supportive and let's open up to not only our pain but to the pain of others as well. - Vridhi Pasricha

Contrastes . Antes, la existencia poblada de engaños, de locas quimeras, de sueños nublados y el bullicio absurdo del trajín humano y el cobarde miedo de soltar mi barco . de echarlo a la mar sin remos ni faros… . Hoy la vida en cambio cual tranquilo barco sin miedo en las olas sereno flotando porque Dios lo guía, lo puse en sus manos cuando entro una tarde en el mar airado. . . ~Nirgidma Murissi © . . . . #poema #poemas #poesia #poesias #mispoemas #mipoema #poetry #poem #mypoem #poems #poetsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #poet #poeta #poetas #poets #womenwriters #escritoras #poemas #poetas #poeta #poets #poetsofinstagram #mipoema #escritoras #writersofinstagram #poesias #poetry #poems #poet #poem #poema #mypoem #poesia #mispoemas #womenwriters

Humans are flowers with legs. The markings on your crystal forehead bare the glimmer of the thoughts of the sun. Each breath you take is a consumption of Nirvana and all it would take is one asteroid to destroy it all. Every prophecy ridden and the gods of Valhalla will glide out into space, suffocating on the emptiness that is void of oxygen. I forced myself and figured I’d dream of you last night and I cried in my haunting sleep of torment. Fuck you, you’re morbid, not I. I’m not that great. • • • • • #poetry #poem #poetsofinstagram #writer #writersofinstagram #poet #poetrycommunity #writing #poems #poetsofig #writersofig #spilledink #wordporn #writingcommunity #words #poetryisnotdead #instapoet #writers #write #writerscommunity #creativewriting #instapoetry #instapoem #poets #prose #igpoets #typewriter #poemsofinstagram #author #poetryofinstagram #writers #author #poets #writerscommunity #writing #wordporn #poetsofinstagram #poetrycommunity #writersofig #instapoet #poetryofinstagram #creativewriting #writingcommunity #poemsofinstagram #words #typewriter #writersofinstagram #instapoem #poems #poetry #write #poetsofig #poet #igpoets #poem #poetryisnotdead #spilledink #writer #instapoetry #prose
