Each of Our Souls is Called to Offer

Each of our souls is called to offer–and is equipped to make it so–

a work of art inspired by God.

 

It may be praised, admired or not

in words or melody or shape.

More often it is overlooked as merely work, as merely work.

 

But when responding to the call

it isn’t merely work at all

it is vocation

despite location;

far from any sanctuary

beyond the walls of monastery

creating convents where we raise

the fruit of labor mixed with praise.

 

And so each life, a sacred see

where sits infallibility

as faith and our simplicity

sanctifies our industry.

 

To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost

let thanks and glory be

as by our work and faith we join

the life of  holy Trinity.
