I’ve enjoyed a number of John’s books. I find them particularly helpful for my daily hour of meditation. I read one or two of John’s poems each day and then spend time in contemplation on how they relate to my own personal spiritual path. I find them insightful and great nourishment for my spiritual life.
Looking forward to John’s new book Movin’ On.
On “Pebbles of Wisdom”
Some are two-liners, others flow to the next page. These “Pebbles” are like walking a beach searching for a perfect stone. Each holds a beauty of its own, as it is in this book.
I have my favorites and one has become my morning prayer. You will find yours too, maybe in John’s interpretation of the Beatitudes, or in how God and the sun relate, or
on becoming an artist. Perhaps one will stick with you, like a pebble in your sock — can’t get it off your mind.
Something in this collection will be with you forever.
In John’s newest book, there is an extraordinary poem titled, “Things Are Coming to an End; Things Are Being Created Anew”. What hit me personally were the traps of nostalgia and despair we face in the challenges of our Catholic faith. Nostalgia especially was undeniably a block for me. John’s words, his candor, made me examine my conscience. Why was I holding on to childish remnants no longer relevant?
John’s use of Hospice to bring his points across is presented with tenderness. The relationship to the dying and a dying church is luminous and, in its simplicity, is a remarkable force. One can feel the hope and light John offers.
This poem was an emotional jolt for me.
