God’s human form, simple and warm,
the wounded Christ arises.
The marks of his dying are portals of hope,
open to all that suffer.
The Gospel gift is meaning in pain,
the gain from our surrender:
in letting go, we claim our birth, and choose new life together.
God’s own compassion shines forth in us,
Who are called to be healed and healing:
that Light illuminates Christ’s features in ours
and on faces of all who are needy.
Thus the Creator crafts us anew:
We are moulded in this image,
As Christ, our Centre, draws us around
And names us Bon Secours.
