POEM OF THE DAY: The Sancutary

by St Catherine of Siena  (1347 -1380).

 

The Sanctuary

 

 

It could be said that God’s foot is so vast

 

That this entire earth is but a

 

field on His

 

toe,

 

 

and all the forests in this world

 

came from the same root of just

 

a single hair

 

of His.

 

 

What then is not a sanctuary?

 

Where can I not kneel

 

and pray at a shrine

 

made holy by His

 

presence?
