Maria’s Poem

Hands are the most exquistite gift
You have given to us.
We enjoy using hands
In many ways by
Creating, caring, touching and so on . . .

I am not alone with my own hands
For your hands are into mine,
Bringing them to life and love.
Communication of all hands
From yours into ours
To build the world of goodness
By rebuilding and restoring
To shape up the broken world
Through the power of hands.

All hands are the multiplication
Of Your Only Hands
On earth to form
The loving existence of You
To heal through
The network of Hands.

Maria is a member of the deaf community who worship at St Patrick’s Collyhurst in Manchester. Maria joined the first meeting of the CAFOD Action Team in the SE Area of the Diocese last night, and offered to share her poem/reflection with us.

We had a very succesful meeting which was hosted by the Sisters of Evron and we are grateful for their support. The second meeting of the SE Area CAFOD Action Team is set for 13th May again at St Patrick’s, Livesey Street, Collyhurst. Please contact the office or Brenda Garlick if you would like to be part of this team, call 0161 740 2529 for Brenda or 0161 705 0605 for the office. A big thank you again to Maria.
