Charism

What is your Charism?
I have only one
Kneeling once, kneeling twice, kneeling thrice
Until the day is done

Some do heal, some do teach
Some do cast the spirits out
Mine gathers tears and sighs
Then neatly dispels doubt

The Sisters venture without reception
With beads or buses they radiate passion
My own cannot compare to those
Who execute with pure abandon

She Knelt Before the Crucifix

She knelt before the crucifix
And all the world knelt too
Follow my example
Take heed I first loved you

The beads fell from her hands
Silence collapsed her ears
A thousand souls rushed in and jeered
Taunting her to tears

Why did you not expect
A cleansing to the bone
Press your face against the ground
Welcome your new home
