 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.]
