Just a short tract I wrote addressing an objection to Catholics calling priests "father"....(It's a first draft, so please bear with it).

Saturday, August 6, 2016

 Feel free to ignore: just writing an an answer to a common objection to Catholic teaching that a (Catholic) friend has heard raised by others against the Church. It's a rough draft, and could no doubt use some work, as I haven't written anything apologetics related in a long time...but I do hope to get back into the habit of writing, so....

[No idea when I originally wrote this, but it's been a few years ago, when I was under the delusion I could practice at least trying to learn how to write poetry, a delusion I'm safe from now. lol.]

His Word Incarnate

Amidst the many trials of this our exile
Long have we waited, for but a single word
From heaven, as we continue the struggle
To resist anew sin's sweet allure

The battle leaves us near despair
And from above silence is all we hear
Do we still cling to a desperate cause?
Or do we concede defeat to our fear?

Then once more our eyes turn to the tree
The place where our salvation occurred
And there we recall the answer has been given
Already, for God has given us His Word

Freedom

Freedom

[Originally written in March 2015, and which I meant to revise, since it definitely needs it, but have never gotten around to. However, I wanted to include it here nevertheless.]

Some quick thoughts I wanted to write down while they were still fresh in my mind (even if, due to the haste of writing it down, it is not precisely in the form I would put it were I taking my time...It is a little too blunt, for instance, precisely because I was a little irritated at the time of writing it due to an example of outright anti-Catholicism I saw, so...if it seems to have an angry tone, that is why. Please forgive me for the tone).

Gloria

Marvelous in the skies above
Amidst the darkness of the night,
Resplendent with fire of His love,
Inspired by His heavenly light,
Angels announce the newborn King

Greatly trembling, the shepherds fear
As the heavens above are filled
By the angels whose song they hear
Before being calmed by such goodwill
Yet so heard in the words that ring

Dare we too join in the praise
Offered by the angels to Christ
As the Child in the manger lays
(Not scorning the Pearl of great price),
Ent'ring the song which they do sing

[Very rarely do I write poetry since, as you can see, I am not a poet.]
