“My name is Lazarus and I live.”
-G.K. Chesterton (“The Convert”)
After one moment when I bowed my head
And the whole world turned over and came upright,
And I came out where the old road shone white.
I walked the ways and heard what all men said,
Forests of tongues, like autumn leaves unshed,
Being not unlovable but strange and light;
Old riddles and new creeds, not in despite
But softly, as men smile about the dead
The sages have a hundred maps to give
That trace their crawling cosmos like a tree,
They rattle reason out through many a sieve
That stores the sand and lets the gold go free:
And all these things are less than dust to me
Because my name is Lazarus and I live.
O Lord My God, I love you so much! Help me love you more, and convert my heart ever more towards you and Your Beautiful Words, so that one day I may see you face to face in Heaven. O teach me to love you more and more! Amen.
