As we make our way to the midpoint of Lent, we may need a reminder to slow down and reflect on our journey. To help us draw on the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we present a poem from one of our Friars in New Mexico.

rising into blue wonder,
my eyes naturally drawn
to their majesty!

Wind, ruah, blows.
Come, Holy Spirit.
Guide me to create
my own path
to explore
to turn doubts to faith and integrity.

after many ages
still draw us to God.

– friar Tom Smith OFM Conv.
