Veronica's Veil

2017 – 06

I

Veronica's Veil - Musings: 2017 - Volume 6; by Fr. Sean O'Laoire, PhD

April 1, 2014:
Bald Mountain never once complained,
even as it’s weather-beaten face
was burned brown
by a relentless sun;
month after desiccated month.
It responded only
with patience.

II

The Galactic Webmaster - Musings: 2017 - Volume 5; by Fr. Sean O'Laoire, PhD

Today the rains have come;
and the angel Veronica
is sponging the mountain’s fevered face
with the diaphanous washcloth
of her moisture-laden mists;
and the mountain responds
with gratitude.

Veronica's Veil - Musings: 2017 - Volume 6; by Fr. Sean O'Laoire, PhD

Bald Mountain knows only two ways of being:
patience...

 

IV

Veronica's Veil - Musings: 2017 - Volume 6; by Fr. Sean O'Laoire, PhD

...and gratitude.

 

V

Veronica's Veil - Musings: 2017 - Volume 6; by Fr. Sean O'Laoire, PhD

Thank you, Veronica
for all the suffering faces
you have softly and compassionately soothed
since first there was a sun
and a mountain
and a Christ on his way to calvary.

 

Namasté!
