Holy God - Holy Mighty One - Holy Immortal One

Eternal Father

by Mary Angela Nangini


“As I lay me down to sleep”

I say the familiar words

of the Mercy Chaplet

and my soul is met

Eternal Father

…and I hear myself in conversation

I love saying these words

Eternal Father

…and my soul is flooded

with the warmth of milk and honey

Eternal Father

having come through the desert




an oasis Eternal Father?

…what comfort

...what peace

Eternal Father

more than carved in the palm of his hand

Eternal Father

more than resting in the promise of his love

carried in the womb of His Heart

Eternal Father!
