Reflections on the Litany of the Sacred Heart - 27

Heart of Jesus, our peace and reconcilation, have mercy on us ...

This wicked war that drags
on  through  the centuries
blinds us. Like the shell-shocked
we come to accept hell
exploding around us.

Beaten down we stumble
around in pain, wounded,
half-starved, half-mad, half-dead,
staggering through the land
with ashes in our mouths.

But some see the Dayspring
rising in the darkness,
bringing us welcome peace,
destroying death with life.
