THE PERFECT PATTERN

In our preparation to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and embark upon a new year, let us meditate on the brilliant words of Mary Manin Morrissey. Let us glorify God in the joy of allowing this poem to remind us of the ‘birth-gift’ of Christ within our own body temple. Merry Christmas!!

 

THE PERFECT PATTERN

by Mary Manin Morrissey

 

“There is a perfect pattern in this universe
and I am a part of this design. I believe in God;
I believe in me
I believe in my dream.
God, help me release any thoughts of
blame for all my disappointments.
Help me let go of the need to control
every outcome.
Teach me to take your will and make it mine.
Help me see every “failure” as an
opportunity to learn life’s greater lesson.
Let my dream bring me closer to You,
for this is the greatest dream of all.”

 

Christine Randle, LUT

DESIDERATA

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.  As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.

 

Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.  Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

 

Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.  Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery.  But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.

 

Be yourself.  Especially, do not feign affection.  Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

 

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.  Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

 

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.  And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

 

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

 

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.  Be cheerful.  Strive to be happy.

 

Max Ehrmann
