Another Perspective From The Mary


Another Perspective

From The Mary Site--Marian Poetry for Lent.

Communion of Reparation (for Our Lady of Sorrows)

Great as the sea is thy sorrow
O wide expanse of lonely gray,
endless to sight
and deep beyond the sounding
of our shallow hearts,
how can we comfort thee?

Great as the sea, and silent
as a morning after storm.
O quietness
beside the shore's wild wreckage,
O grief-worn waters,
what comfort can we bring?

O great like the sea, and profound!
O great, and as the sea, so stilled!
O Sorrow of Mary,
the infinite Heart of God alone
can comfort thee.

Sr. Mary Julian Baird, R.S.M.
Catholic World - Page 21. Volume 181.
April 1955
