ADVENT 2020

waiting. waiting. 

while heaven downloads

onto devices

a million years old.

this could take all month…

thank God it’s Advent:

season of Hope

nested inside Pandemic:

season of Brick Walls

(objects that stop and block

but also prop

up helpful roofs)

Julie, the mystical technician, says

it all will be well

all will be well

all manner of things will be well

barring any system error.

Greg Kennedy SJ is a Jesuit priest working as a spiritual director at the Ignatius Jesuit Centre in Guelph, Ontario. His prayer often takes the form of poetry. Care of creation is central to his vocation. His new book, Amazing Friendships Between Animals and Saints, is now available for purchase.
