Justice Bulletin Board Poem

Several people have asked for the words for the beautiful poem at the end/beginning of Christmas which I used in my homily:

When the song of the angels is silent

When the star in the sky is gone

When the kings and princes are home

When the shepherds are again tending their sheep

When the manger is darkened and still

The work of Christmas begins . . .

To find the lost.     To heal the broken.     To feed the hungry.     To shelter the homeless.

To rebuild the nations.     To teach God’s Children.     To bring peace among people.

To befriend the lonely.     To release the prisoner.

To make music in the heart.

God’s justice is this-that all God’s children will be able to live in such a manner

that they can be who God created them to be.

Happy Ordinary Time.

In Christ’s Peace,
