Reflection: The new evangelisation: 'missionary spirit' needed - Fr Dennis W. Byrnes

I'm with you in the crowded train,
I'm with you in the pouring rain,
I'm with you when you're most alone,
I'm with you when they cast the stone,
I'm with you when it seems that none
Will shade you from the blazing sun,
And in the prison cell, and in the mine,
And when the sudden flick-knives shine.

I'm with you when you curse me most
With the Father and the Holy Ghost.
No mother wept her child, but there as well
My mother wept for me and every bell
That mourns a mother's loss still signifies
I care for every soul that lives and dies
- Because I took on flesh and blood for you
I've played the game of Consequences too.

BRUCE DAWE
