    Default Brooding Everlasting (CTG)

    Brooding Everlasting

    Brooding, photoshopped church!
    Work-place of the poet-priest!
    In the words of a prayer, he urged
    how he loved Jesus best:

    "O Deus, ego amo te.
    O God, I love thee, I love thee--
    not out of hope of heaven for me,
    nor fearing not to love and be.
    "

    So the convert-priest praised He
    who was spat on, under brooding skies,
    "for my sake sufferedst nails, and lance,
    mocked and marred countenance
    ."

    Hopkins' words described the faith
    of St. Francis, so expressing both
    the saint's self-knowledge and his own,
    the beliefs he felt in his bones.

    Christopher T. George

    St. Francis Xavier Church, Liverpool by Derek Hyamson.
    Gerard Manley Hopkins served as part of the parish
    staff for two years in 1880-1.
