Between Us

(You) must be a committed friend of holy prayer,
one who can distribute some hours
for (your own) soul, and for others.

– St. Francis of Assisi

 

Who in this space, God, to me;
what within your chosen hour?

Whose soul re-distribute here,
stir within your fertile power.

Holy Spirit risking enter,
friend of Jesus to encounter,

careful turn inside our prayer,
wake to breathe, your kin-dom sample.

 

-William B. Jones
(Francis cited from Assisi Compilation XLII)
