Sr. Clare

Michael O’Connell:  I was thinking about her today and of those who commit their lives to Jesus and these words came to mind. In some ways, this was my conversation with her today.

We want to share this poem with you, written in Sr. Clare’s own native land. Michael O’Connell, from Co. Kerry, has sent it to us with this note, “I was thinking about her today and of those who commit their lives to Jesus and these words came to mind. In some ways, this was my conversation with her today.”

Sister Clare Maria of the Trinity and of the Heart of Mary

 

Christ’s call I did hear

At His feet it all became clear

The cross of nails a gift to me

No please no not for me

 

A TV star I am to be

No poverty, chastity, or obedience for me

Let the stars shine in my face

An audience I will grace

 

God touched my heart with a celestial voice

Like Saul a different path is my choice

 

Christ came to set us free

We hanged him on a tree

His perfect love for you and I 

In God’s grace to live we must try

 

The world looked at me in wonder

Everything to God is my thunder

This world is not my place

Alone with Christ alone is my grace
