A Poem by a Poor Clare Colettine

A poem by a Poor Clare Colettine nun who lived in the Ty Mam Duw monastery in Wales, UK.  Sr. Miriam Judith of the Holy Trinity, April 1, 1938 - August 10, 2000:

"The wounded hands of Jesus,
outstretched to me entreat,
who, running, fall before Him
to kiss His wounded feet.
So barefoot, as a beggar,
may I thy bride, Lord, be.
I lay my hand in Thine, Lord,
for I belong to Thee."

Sr. Elise's Investiture, Barhamsville PCCs
