I Believe

With cool water, I bless, Father, Son, Holy Spirit, kneel and weep. The crimson light proclaims His Body, Blood, and Soul. Mourning your haunted, prodigal faith, mine soars in light 2000 years old.

Trifecta’s Trifextra: Week Fifty Seven asks us to write a piece of first person narrative in 33 words. This is my bit using my own voice.

One of my favorite songs ever. I use to play flute in a group at weekend Mass. Every time I hear this song, it makes me weep. I loved playing the flute part, so pure and so haunting. It speaks of my faith and my love for my faith. I truly believe.

    I grew up in the era of Latin masses. “Folk” masses came in about the time I went out of the catholic church. Nevertheless I believe – thank you for this beautiful song and for your beautiful words.

      Thanks so much. I guess it is a prayer. I didn’t write it thinking it was, but upon contemplation and re-reading a few times, it really is.


  7. Strains of religious fervor. The crimson light is very evocative.

    The Joy of Believing is captured beautifully in your piece. You seem at peace. Congratulations and continued happiness.

      Thanks. I am but, at times I am not. I think with all faith you have peaks and valleys. It’s a matter of learning to climb the hills knowing there’s a crest ahead and the comfort of the valley ahead.
