The Catholic Parish of
Saint John Henry Newman

 Covering most of East Leeds


Read 1423 Times
You are the sons of the earth
inhabitants of the human race
You are the daughters of the flesh
dwellers of the cave of guilt

You are the children of the law
piled by reason but burdened by passion
You are the pilgrims of Calvary
from the river of sin
to the ocean of lament and pain

You are the strangers lost in history
whose creed is crucified through eternity
from the womb of ignorance
to the grave of vengeance
You are the soldiers in sword and shield
but left by strength
of no peace even a quiet place to rest

You are only a shadow of the broken soul
that is searching for light in the morning of fate
but cannot see its brightness
for intelligence blinded your eyes

You are the people of the most high
who build Temples for worship
but without a heart
who erected Churches for prayer
but of no faith
